Getting into a truck accident can be much more deadly and dangerous than a car accident. When an 18 wheeler gets into an accident on the road, it can cause a major hold up and extensive damage to the cars that were driving behind the truck and even other trucks that may have been on the road as well. Accidents on the road can happen to anyone. You might be the most responsible driver, but you could still find yourself dealing with a situation that can quickly turn deadly. In the last year, there were almost 4,000 deaths due to truck accidents. Seventeen percent of those deaths were the truck driver and 66 percent of the deaths were the people in other vehicles, buses, and vans. The last 16 percent were people who were walking, biking, and on motorcycles. If you have been in a truck accident, then a lawyer at ZuppkeLaw can help you get restitution during this difficult time.
