In Virginia and across the entire nation, trucks are always on the road making deliveries and going back and forth across the country. Large and intimidating, these vehicles are so prominent because of their sheer size and the fact that the only thing preventing a truck accident with significant damage to life and limb is the driver and the way the truck was put together.
In Virginia, trucks are a common sight on the roads. Other drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians are placing their trust in these truckers and truck companies that the vehicles will be properly maintained and that the drivers will put safety first. That, however, doesn't always happen and truck accidents can occur. Given the size of these vehicles, the results often leave others with severe injuries or result in fatalities. It's important for those who have been affected by a truck accident know what to do after it has happened.
