In the United States, an estimated 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year, resulting in approx. 130,000 injuries and about 5,000 deaths. With their size, speed and weight, it comes as no surprise that the drivers of smaller passenger vehicles frequently suffer severe injuries, some fatal.
If you’re a victim of a big rig wreck you are often left to deal with costly medical bills, emotional trauma, property damage, and other expenses. If the truck driver acted negligently or the trucking company that maintains the vehicle and hired the driver is in any way responsible, then they may be liable for damages caused to you and your loved ones.
Trucking accidents are a serious matter, and you deserve to seek compensation for your injuries and damages suffered. The Law Office of Keith Miller will take your individual situation into consideration to determine your specific needs and obtain the financial compensation that you deserve.
