Knowing that your loved one died as a result of an accident that could have been prevented just makes the situation even more devastating. Unfortunately, thousands of people lose their lives as a result of truck accidents each year in the United States. Far too often, negligence plays a role.
We see countless truck accidents take place as a result of drivers or reckless, distracted, or impaired while operating their vehicles. Unfortunately, a driver letting their guard down for even a moment can have severe consequences for other people around. This is particularly true for pedestrians.
