Driving a commercial truck is not an easy job by any means. Trucks are large and potentially dangerous vehicles: some weigh more than 80,000 pounds. Even in the best conditions, they can be difficult to steer or to drive along steep roads. Unfortunately, truckers are rarely working in the best conditions, as they often have to drive long hours without breaks to meet their deadlines.

Whether you have been injured by a negligent trucker or drive a truck yourself, the 18-wheeler accident lawyers the Ruth Law Team can help you deal with the aftermath of an accident. We know how to sort through an accident to determine who is ultimately responsible, and how to successfully file a claim against that party.

Call our offices at (888) 783-8378 to learn how we can help you with cases like:

A large truck accident is rarely minor. If you have been hurt by a negligent truck driver or trucking company, you need to contact an attorney to learn about and to protect your legal rights.
