Large Commercial Truck and Tractor-Trailer Accidents in WV

Jackknifing and rollover accidents are major factors that cause truck accident fatalities and when an accident involves a commercial truck or tractor-trailer, it usually kills or injures the other driver. Most of the time, the truck driver escapes injury. The large size, extremely heavy loads, and longer braking distances required to stop are factors that place tractor-trailer accidents in a class all by themselves. Injuries suffered by victims of large commercial truck accidents tend to be serious, and the laws and regulations that apply to tractor-trailers are complicated. There are books of regulations for the trucking industry. You need a truck accident lawyer who knows and understands those regulations.
