Auto/truck collisions are more common than people think. In fact, roughly 500,000 trucking accidents and nearly 5,000 fatal auto/truck accident collisions occur on U.S. roads every year.
Right here in Wisconsin, thousands of people are injured in car/truck accidents every year, many through no fault of their own. And in many of these cases, the car drivers are the ones who walk away with much more physical and property damage than the truck drivers.
Auto/Truck Accident Law 101: What to Do After a Car and Truck Accident
