Most of us have had a frightening experience with a tractor-trailer. These vehicles often weigh more that 70,000 pounds and travel at speeds up to 70 miles per hour. As we share the road with these vehicles, we can observe that there is often only a few feet between us as we travel down our respective lanes of traffic. While most professional truck drivers take their responsibilities very seriously and adhere strictly to the rules of the road, unfortunately some do not, and when this is the case, the results can be disastrous.
At Brown & Jennings, PLC, we represent people who have had encounters with tractor-trailers and assist them in the often complicated issues surrounding the liability of interstate carriers so as to help put their lives back together or assist their loved ones as best we can.
