Driving a truck is not an easy job. It’s very exhausting to be on the road all the time, which explains why truck drivers are known to sometimes cause accidents.

Horrible Truck Accident Leaves Woman Trapped in Cement

If you’ve ever known someone––a friend, relative, or acquaintance––who’s been involved in a serious truck accident, you know how traumatic the experience and its aftermath can be.

Such was the case when Yin Min Tai and her boyfriend,Lok Wan, were involved in an accident with a large cement truck in China’s Fuzhou, Fujian Province,in February, 2014 – a crash that left her trapped and fearing for her life.…

You’re Not Safe from Truck Accidents No Matter Where You Are

When big trucks get into accidents, they not only tend to cause a lot of damage, but leave a wide swath of destruction,as well.

Pizza can be dangerous. No, we’re not talking about the fat content or the artery-clogging cholesterol. We’re talking about the surprising number of accidents and injuries surrounding pizza delivery.

Truckers Must Follow Strict Federal and State Laws to Maintain Safety on the Roads
Posted By:

Any motor vehicle accident is a serious matter, but when the accident involves a truck, the sheer power and size of the truck tends to cause more severe property damage, personal injury, and even death.

A truck accident lawyer in West Palm Beach is knowledgeable with regard to these requirements and will prosecute those who ignore them.
