Ashburn Truck Accident Attorney Representing Victims
If you have suffered injuries or lost a loved one in a truck accident that involved a tractor-trailer, a commercial truck, or an 18-wheeler, the Ashburn attorneys at Michael T. Friedman & Associates PC will get you the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Anyone who is riding in a passenger car and ends up getting injured in an accident that involves a commercial truck, a tractor-trailer truck, or an 18-wheeler typically suffers severe trauma from the collision. This is because a passenger car cannot protect its occupants from a truck that weighs up to 20 times more than it does. Truck accidents are often devastating for the victims who were in the passenger vehicle.
Why Truck Accidents are So Devastating
It is nearly impossible to imagine someone who weighs 20 times more than you crashing into you. However, imagine that a father weighing 180 pounds plows into his child, who weighs only 60 pounds, while they are playing football in the backyard. He will certainly knock the child down, and there might be some bruises, possibly a bloody nose – broken bones are possible, depending on how father landed on the child.
This example does not compare to the speed that vehicles travel or the multiples of weight that we are talking about, but it does give you an idea of the size difference and why truck accidents can be so devastating, especially at high speeds on the highway. The injuries that the people in the smaller vehicles sustain are serious and often life-threatening. In too many cases, they are deadly.
