Imperial Beach Truck Accident Attorney
Sometimes weighing between 40,000 and 80,000 pounds, depending on how much cargo is being carried, semi-trucks or 18-wheelers are large and powerful machines that can cause serious damage in the event of an accident. And, although these vehicles are essential for shipping products or materials all over the country, they can also be very dangerous and may put innocent motorists at risk of an accident and potentially life-altering injury. If you or someone you know has been injured in a truck accident due to reckless truck drivers or negligent trucking companies, you may be eligible for financial compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.
At Ritter & Associates, we understand how difficult it can be to recover from injuries, especially if they require extensive medical care or a lengthy rehabilitation period. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through this time in your life alone.
