When a truck accident occurs in Virginia, those who were affected by it will have a great deal to consider. If there are serious injuries involved there will likely be considerable medical costs from a hospital stay, and potentially more with rehabilitation and perhaps long-term care. With a fatality, the family who lost a loved one will have to live their lives without a parent, a spouse, a sibling or a child. Trucks are a major presence on the nation's landscape and provide goods, services and jobs. That, however, doesn't alter the fact that their massive size makes a crash involving a commercial vehicle a major risk for injuries and death.
Semitrailers carry goods across the country every day, keeping our world moving and well supplied. They are essential to our fast-paced economy. However, disaster can strike when one of these large moving tractor trailers do not stay on the road as planned. Such was the case in Virginia on U.S. Highway 29 where a fiery truck accident left one person dead.
