Large trucks, tractor-trailers, and 18-wheelers cause many motor vehicle accidents on the roads of Alabama and throughout the U.S. An 18-wheeler truck and fully-loaded trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When these massive vehicles collide with passenger cars, the occupants of the smaller vehicles may suffer devastating, life-altering injuries.
Because of these dangers, the trucking industry is required to comply with the regulations issued under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act. However, when truck drivers and trucking companies do not comply with those regulations, a tragic accident can result.
A truck accident injury can be a disorienting, traumatic and life-changing event. As you recover, medical bills will begin piling up. You may be out of work and unable to earn a living. That financial situation will make you feel helpless. You will need help to obtain financial compensation for your injuries and the other damages you have suffered.
