Commercial Vehicle Accidents Can Be Especially Dangerous

It can be intimidating driving on the road with commercial motor vehicles like semi trucks, 18-wheelers and tractor-trailers. The multitude of blind spots and the unwieldy nature of such large vehicles make it difficult to predict what drivers will do. If they are distracted or fatigued, the cargo is not secured properly or if maintenance was not done or performed improperly, a crash can happen at any moment.

What Damages Are You Entitled To?

If you are involved in a semi truck accident, the damages and injuries can be much more severe. We at Gellner Law Offices in Wheeling, West Virginia, can help you get compensation for the following kinds of damages:

  • Pain and suffering: The law allows you to be compensated for the pain and suffering and the inability to return to your normal activities and lasting permanent disabilities a crash like this may cause.
