Truck Accidents in West Virginia
Truck drivers are not like other types of drivers on our roads due to the fact that they are specifically trained for the job and have to abide by many regulations on our roadways. Because of the strict regulations set in place by trucking companies and the federal government, truck accidents are less likely to take place than other accidents. However, when truck accidents do take place, they are known for bringing some of the most catastrophic injuries. Because of this, it is imperative to have a truck accident attorney on your side in West Virginia.
