A collision involving a motor vehicle and a collision involving a tractor-trailer are equally serious matters. However, collisions involving tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, and other vehicles owned by trucking companies present complicated legal questions. Due to the very nature of a truck accident, the personal injuries and damages are likely to be extensive. If you need a Waldorf, Maryland trucking accident attorney or an attorney across the state, call us.
