Motorists in Massachusetts share the roads with a variety of vehicles. While this is commonplace, it is not always easy for drivers to share the road with large commercial trucks. While semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks are necessary vehicles to get goods and shipments to and from their intended destinations, it is often difficult to reduce negligent truck drivers on the roads and thus reduce and prevent truck accidents.
Being a victim of a truck crash can be life altering. At the Law offices of Joseph J Cariglia, P.C., our experienced attorneys are dedicated to helping truck accident victims protect their rights and understand their options following a truck accident.
Much like motorists can be distracted by technology or fatigued after driving long hours or during the night, truck drivers suffer the same issues. In order to address these dangers, federal trucking regulations have been passed. While these help set standards and implement penalties, this does not always prevent truck accidents from occurring.
A truck crash is different than other automobile collisions. These are massive vehicles and commercial trucks can cause much destruction and serious injuries. A truck accident victim could endure life-threatening injuries, requiring much medical attention. While a victim is likely to recover from the physical injuries, it is possible to suffer mental and emotional damages as a result of the crash.
Our skilled attorneys can help victims not only calculate the damages they suffered but also help them collect evidence to prove fault in the crash. This could help victims not only hold a liable party accountable but also help them collect necessary compensation to cover medical bills, rehabilitation, losses and damages.
