If you or a loved one was involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, semi, tanker truck, dump truck or any other type of commercial vehicle, talk to a personal injury attorney before agreeing to any terms or accepting any offers from an insurance company. Large trucks are common on the highways in Indiana and Kentucky and can be very dangerous due to their size and weight. As with any other type of vehicle, semi trucks can be the cause of accidents and also victims. Common causes of semi accidents can include distracted driving, driving fatigue, improper loading and speeding.
