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.
