You should not have to pay the price for a truck driver's error

Every year in Kentucky, countless accidents occur on the roads, and a great number of these accidents involve large vehicles like trucks and buses. Unfortunately, this often means widespread damage and serious injuries for all concerned. Worse still, many of the victims of these incidents are innocent people who bear no responsibility for the crash.

The problem is that not every truck driver takes the job as seriously as he or she should. Some even choose to drive while intoxicated, while others go too fast or fail to take their blind spots into account. Other drivers are subjected to long working hours and may not have had sufficient rest. While this can sometimes be the fault of the trucking company, the consequences are often the same.

As if all this was not enough, even the truck's load can be a danger. The sheer weight can contribute to the damage caused in an accident. On top of this, the load may be toxic or flammable. In some cases, this could lead to respiratory damage, fires or even explosions.

If you or a loved one have been hurt as a result of a truck driver's negligence, you should not have to bear the costs. Medical bills can quickly mount up, and you may even find yourself unable to return to work until you have recovered. It may seem like a lot to think about when you are injured, but our page on road accidents may have some of the answers you need.
