With its myriad of superhighways and access to many other municipalities, the commonwealth of Virginia has seen its fair share of truck accidents. Such heavy vehicle accidents can sometimes result from fatigue, inattentiveness or the negligence of the truck driver. Other reasons for these collisions can include inadequate truck maintenance, defective auto parts, excessive speeding or an unqualified or inexperienced truck driver.
Accidents involving massive commercial trucks or 18-wheelers can be catastrophic for other, smaller vehicles on the road and, worse, for pedestrians. Irrespective of who is at fault, a truck accident can easily prove fatal or, at the very least, inflict serious injuries on their victims.
