Rear-End Truck Accident Lawyers
Rear-end accidents are often referred to as “fender benders.” Anyone who claims that rear-end accidents are minor has never seen the devastation caused by a semi-truck slamming into the vehicle in front of it. While accidents between trucks and passenger vehicles can happen in several different ways, rear-end accidents constitute over 26% of all truck-involved accidents. Due to how heavy trucks are, passenger vehicles are likely to sustain severe damage, gravely endangering their occupants.
