Alabama 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyer

Millions of cars and trucks travel Alabama roadways every year and the majority of these trips go accident free. But when the driver of an 18-wheeler or other commercial vehicle chooses to drive carelessly and not obey the rules of the road or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, accidents happen. Being involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler or big truck often results in very serious injuries for the occupants of a car or pickup truck because of the extreme weight difference. Passenger cars weigh on average about 3,500 pounds and pickup trucks and mini vans weigh on average about 5,000-6,000 pounds. 18-wheelers, on the other hand weigh an average of 80,000 pounds and the damage they can do is enormous.
