Cedar Rapids Truck Driver Error Lawyer
The size and weight of large commercial trucks, such as 18-wheelers, make them a serious threat to other vehicles on the road. If something goes wrong, or if a driver loses control of one of these trucks, multiple other vehicles are likely to be involved in a catastrophic accident.
Studies have found that there are approximately 500,000 truck accidents every year in the United States, which result in around 5,000 annual fatalities.
While some of these accidents can be traced back to actions on the part of the other driver, truck driver error and negligence accounts for thousands of serious accidents each and every year. To make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve if you have been the victim of a truck accident caused by driver error, contact a Cedar Rapids truck driver error attorney at Leehey Olson Law, P.C., today.
