Because tractor trailers, semis, 18-wheelers, and other commercial trucks are so much larger than other vehicles on the road, they represent a significant public health risk when they are operated or maintained in a reckless or negligent manner. Every year countless Americans are killed or seriously injured in traffic accidents caused by the owner or operator of a large commercial vehicle.
Interstate carriers that own and operate commercial trucks are subject to both state and federal regulations. For that reason, litigation involving auto accidents caused by a commercial truck can raise complicated and unique legal questions that do not arise in ordinary vehicular litigation. It is imperative that tractor trailer accident cases are handled by a capable attorney who understands how to navigate the framework of commercial carrier litigation.
The attorneys at Meyerson & O’Neill have the skill and experience necessary to successfully litigate commercial vehicle accident cases.
