semitruck & 18-wheeler accident injuries Archives

1 injured in semitruck accident

Drivers in West Virginia may feel understandably on edge when driving near semitrucks and other large vehicles. After all, these types of motor vehicles can cause serious injuries in accidents, and fatigue among truck drivers is a common issue. However, it is not impossible for the driver of a passenger vehicle to cause a semitruck accident that leads to injuries.

Teen killed, another injured in early morning truck accident

Allowing teenagers to have a sense of freedom behind the wheel is not always easy for parents. Most worry about their children's safety, even if their teens are otherwise safe and cautious drivers. The reality is that driving can be dangerous no matter how well a driver acts behind the wheel. A West Virginia community may have realized this after a teenager was killed in a truck accident while on his way to school.

Large truck accidents can be devastating

Drivers in West Virginia are probably used to seeing 18-wheelers speeding along the interstate, and most might not give these massive vehicles another thought. Unfortunately, just because they are common does not mean they are safe. The injuries associated with large truck accidents are severe, and many victims live with lifelong symptoms or do not survive at all.

Semitruck and 18-wheeler accident injuries are often fatal

Tractor-trailers are a staple on West Virginia highways. These large trucks crisscross the country day and night, transporting goods. Although they serve an important function, driving by an 18-wheeler at high speeds can be an incredibly disconcerting feeling. Semitruck and 18-wheeler accident injuries tend to be severe and even fatal, and the possibility of a wreck is probably higher than most drivers realize.
