Looking Closely Into the Cause of Your Accident
Truck accidents can have any number of causes. For example, when trucks lose control and jackknife, any people in the truck’s path are likely to suffer life-altering injuries. In other cases, safety defects can make the consequences of an accident even worse. For instance, commercial trucks are required to have side guards on their sides and rear. These guards should prevent other vehicles from sliding under the truck and causing underride injuries, which are often fatal. When trucks fail to have side guards in place, motorists and passengers can suffer irreparable harm.
