Truck Accidents in North Carolina
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured as a result of truck accidents in the U.S. Truck accidents happen in the blink of an eye due to many different reasons. For instance, because truck drivers spend an extended period of time on our roads, they are more likely to fall asleep at the wheel or engage in DISTRACTED DRIVING. If you have been hurt in a truck accident, you should always speak with an accident attorney you can rely on.
Trucks are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, which means that they are capable of causing some of the most extensive harm to smaller vehicles. Truck drivers are expected to abide by the rules of our roads because they have had special training and have to follow special regulations.
