The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) estimates that over 100,000 truck accidents occur every year. Given the difference in size and weight of an 18-wheeler versus a car, motorcycle rider, or even pedestrian, these accidents are often catastrophic or even fatal.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a serious accident, reach out to the Sawyer Law Firm by calling (334) 339-7025.
