What is truck accident litigation?

A trucking accident occurs when big rigs or semi trucks collide with other vehicles or pedestrians. Due to the large size of trucks, an accident can greatly endanger the lives of other smaller vehicles.

People who are injured in truck accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
