Injury Attorney for Trucking Accident
Trucking Accident Injury in Alabama
Personal Injury Lawyer Huntsville, AL | Crumbley-Blackwell & Associates, P.C.
Trucks such as 18-wheelers are massive vehicles. Many people driving alongside trucks often feel intimidated or worried, and they may be justified to feel this way. Unfortunately, such massive vehicles routinely are the cause of major car accidents that lead to people being significantly injured. The standards for operating a commercial trucking vehicle are much stricter than the standards for regular vehicle operation. Because of the size of a vehicle, even the smallest of mistakes can have unintended impacts.
According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are 10 million trucks on the road. The overwhelming majority of injuries in trucking accidents are suffered by people outside the truck, either occupants of other vehicles or pedestrians.
