Truck accidents often life-changing for those injured

We're all familiar with the 18-wheeler hauling cargo down a major freeway. Since they are so commonplace, the average person may become desensitized to their potential danger. However, that false sense of security can come to a screeching end when a person or a loved one is involved in a truck accident and suffers serious injuries. The truth is, commercial trucks can have a life-changing impact if a person is involved in a truck accident.

Did you know that commercial trucks are regulated by federal guidelines? Because of their size, potentially dangerous cargo, the speed at which they travel and other factors, commercial trucks are expected to follow strict regulations that regular passenger vehicles do not have to think about. These include regulations on the truck driver, including the amount of time they can drive before legally taking a break. There are also regulations on the truck itself.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident and suffered serious injuries, read on. It's possible that the truck driver, truck company or other related-third party was negligent in how the truck was prepared, driven or maintained. A full investigation can help reveal any discrepancies that could indicate negligence. At Conlon Tarker PC, we know how devastating truck accident injuries can be and we want to help.

Thinking ahead, a truck accident injury could have long-lasting and life-changing impacts. Injuries sustained in truck accidents can not only impact a person's health but can prohibit the victim from working the way they did previously. It's important to hold truck companies and related third-parties accountable after a truck accident.
