Semi trucks and other commercial vehicles play an important role in our state's economy. As these trucks comprise such a large part of the transportation system, ordinary motorists must often drive alongside or near these vehicles almost every day. Unfortunately, truck accidents do occur and may result in catastrophic injuries when smaller automobiles collide with such a formidable obstacle.
You probably already know that sometimes these accidents happen because the driver was negligent in his or her actions. In these cases, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries and even your suffering. Most any personal injury lawyer would advocate on your behalf and help you navigate the West Virginia legal system. The attorneys with the Akers Law Offices are no exception. However, we also want to educate you on why semis present such a danger to motorists.
