Maryland Truck Accident Lawyer

In 2008, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported over 4,000 fatal accidents involving large trucks and 66,000 injury accidents. In Maryland alone, there were nearly 740 injuries from trucking accidents in 2007. Trucking accidents, such as tractor trailer accidents and 18 wheeler accidents, are often far more severe than typical automotive accidents due to the size of the vehicles involved. In these types of crashes, over 80% of those killed and injured are passengers or drivers of the vehicle that was struck by the large truck, not occupants of the truck itself.
