I have represented countless clients in Birmingham and around Alabama who have been injured in a crash with an 18-wheeler and represented the families of people who have been killed in similar crashes.
It's rare for someone to come into my office after one of those crashes and have just minor injuries. That's because even the safest cars on the market struggle to fully protect you in a crash with an 80,000 tractor-trailer truck racing down the highway at 80 MPH.
I would much rather have you avoid an accident with a semi altogether than have to have you or your loved ones come to talk to me after one of those crashes. That's why I put together this video with a few simple suggestions for keeping safe around those massive trucks as you drive everyday. They are common sense ideas but they are also things that can easily be forgotten as you go about your busy day.
If you are a victim of a crash with an 18-wheeler or another big truck, let me know by calling (205) 322-1201. We will let you know how we can help.
