Trucking accidents can cause horrible injuries – even death. The vast weight of semi trucks make it harder for them to stop than smaller cars, and their large size can cause worse damage. A Michigan trucking company recently paid $18 million to three families who lost their loved ones during a tragic trucking accident in June 2006.
The driver of the truck, who was on Valium at the time of the accident, allegedly fell asleep at the wheel, causing him to rear-end a car carrying four women on their way to a wedding. Three of the women suffered wrongful death after the trucking accident.
Our Toledo, Ohio trucking accident attorneys have seen the devastating affects that personal injuries and wrongful deaths from trucking accidents can have on a family.
