The danger posed by operating semis on our highways is a recognized fact. This is apparent in the amount of regulation that exists that governs the maintenance and operation of tractor trailers. The drivers of 18 wheelers go through extensive training to teach them how to safely operate vehicles that can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When operating a semi, even minor driver errors can create a deadly auto accident.

Recovering from the level of injuries that can be sustained in accidents involving tractor trailers often requires access to intensive medical care for an extended period of time. Ensuring that you have the medical and financial resources to be able to recover from your injuries can require the skilled advocacy of an experienced attorney.
