Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are a major cause of injury and death in the United States. Commercial vehicles such as eighteen wheelers, semi-trucks, dump trucks, and others can cause horrific crashes on the roadways of Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. Eighteen wheelers many times cause catastrophic damage due to their size and weight. When a big rig is involved in a crash with a passenger vehicle, people are injured and even killed.

18 wheeler accidents often times occur due to the operator of the truck violating the rules of the road. Many times the company that the driver is working for can be held responsible for their driver’s negligence, and in most all cases, the employer of the driver will be held responsible for the damages. An experienced legal team such as the one at Greene & Phillips can help victims navigate through the complexities of trucking cases and can help you in your time of need.
