Truck Accidents vs. Car Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents are a top cause of unintentional injury deaths in the United States. A wide variety of negligent actions cause fatal car accidents: drinking and driving, being distracted, speeding, and breaking other rules of the road. It is crucial for every motorist to be aware of their rights and responsibilities, but also to realize that not all accidents have the same legal treatment. The lawyers at The Barnes Firm want to bring some of these statistics to your attention and point out some significant differences between a typical car crash and commercial truck accidents.
