When Trucking Companies Put Profits Before People
The trucking industry is a vital part of our national community, hauling goods, commodities and resources across our highways and interstates. However, all too often, trucking companies put speed and “efficiency” ahead of safety protocol. When they do, truckers and their employers put everyone else on the road at risk.
The Smaller Vehicle Bears The Brunt In Tractor-Trailer Accidents
When truck accidents occur, the driver and passengers in the other vehicle are significantly more likely to be injured and the devastation can be catastrophic. Due to their mass and speed, tractor-trailers, freight trucks and other commercial vehicles cause extremely serious injuries. The lawyers at Shelly Law Offices have handled dozens of accidents involving 18-wheelers and other trucks. Our familiarity with nationally recognized trucking experts and the federal regulations that govern interstate hauling places us in a unique position to litigate catastrophic tractor trailer accidents.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a semitruck or commercial vehicle accident, it is important that you are properly compensated and that the trucking company is held accountable. We are ready to put our experience to work for you.
