Truck Accidents in Maine

In general, truck accidents are significantly more complex and risky than those involving motorcycles or vehicles. Semis, 18-wheelers, tractors-trailers, heavy rigs, and other large vehicles can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. Of course, in the event of an accident or collision involving one of these massive vehicles, a lorry traveling at a high speed can result in irreparable damage, significant injuries, or even fatalities.

The primary concerns regarding truck accidents are often the excruciating injuries, much more expensive property damage, and higher fatality rates. Regrettably, the majority of trucking companies employ prominent legal teams to protect themselves from liability for damages, as they are cognizant of the inherent dangers associated with transportation.
