Gravel & Shea Personal Injury

Truck & Bus Crashes/Accidents

You may try to swerve out of the way, but when an 18-wheeler, bus, or any other large commercial vehicle crosses into your lane, runs a red light, or blocks your way, it may be impossible to maneuver in time to avoid a crash.

Large companies send heavy commercial vehicles over America’s roads every day. These companies have a right to use public roads, but that right comes with a responsibility. Commercial vehicles—particularly semi-trucks—are typically larger and heavier than the passenger car, minivan, SUV or motorcycle you may be driving. A semi-truck can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, depending on whether it’s loaded, and likely is much longer than a passenger vehicle.

Because of the additional size and weight of commercial vehicles, a collision is likely to result in catastrophic injuries. For this reason, companies that own and operate commercial vehicles must follow regulations about who can drive commercial vehicles and how they can be operated. If the truck or bus companies or their drivers violate federal or state regulations or motor vehicle laws, we can hold them accountable.
