Semi-trucks are a common sight on American highways. These vehicles are essential to our economy, and transport millions of tons of freight from coast to coast each year. Unfortunately, they can also pose a significant risk of injury to motorists and other people using our roadways. Due to their large size and heavy weight, tractor trailers can cause extensive damage and serious injury when they are involved in accidents with other vehicles. When these accidents are due to someone’s negligence victims may be able to recover for any losses they sustain. Because of the myriad federal and state regulations that apply to the trucking industry, as well as the number of parties that may be implicated, truck accident cases are often more complicated than other types of motor vehicle accidents. As a result, anyone who has been involved in a tractor-trailer accident should contact an experienced Philadelphia personal injury attorney Gabriel Levin as soon as possible to obtain legal representation.
Fortunately for motorists, there are certain steps that you can take in order to reduce your risk of being involved in a collision with a semi-truck. These include the following:
