Large trucks and 18-wheelers are a dangerous addition to any road. Even with a safe driver and optimal weather conditions, these trucks are inherently dangerous to other drivers because of their large size in comparison to smaller passenger cars. Because of this difference in size and weight, even minor accidents with large trucks can be catastrophic.
Victims of trucking accidents should not have to suffer additional hardships in the aftermath of an accident. The party responsible for the victim’s injuries and suffering should also be held responsible for compensating the victim for his or her losses. The Danville truck accident lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C. can evaluate your case and help you take legal action against the negligent party. Contact us at (217) 443-4343 to discuss your situation.

A truck accident can occur for a variety of reasons. Since truckers drive such long distances, some truckers rely on stimulants to help them stay awake from place to place. Others deal with this stress by drinking dangerously during breaks. Even responsible truck drivers can get involved in accidents; large trucks are often loaded incorrectly or contain defective or malfunctioning parts. Regardless of the reason for a truck accident, a knowledgeable lawyer can determine why the accident occurred and whether the driver, the trucking company, or some other party is responsible for your injuries.
