The National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) reports that there is an average of 23,000 truck accidents every year in the United States. A large number of these collisions result in serious injuries or fatalities. 18 wheeler tractor trailer wrecks aren’t just big car wrecks. When an 80,000 pound tractor-trailer collides with a 5,000 pound car the force equation likely means the injuries are worse. Often these wrecks are not just “carelessness,” but sleep deprived drivers in violation of federal hour or safety regulations. These violations can be the result of trucking companies putting profit over safety.
Time is of the essence in a truck wreck case and you need an attorney quickly before the evidence helpful to your case gets destroyed. Sometimes trucking companies would rather destroy the records than let them see the light of day in a courtroom. Delay allows the companies to destroy records and escape accountability. Let the Attorneys at Norris Law fight for you and your family.
