About Truck Accident Lawsuits
Drivers of passenger vehicles are commonly the primary cause of truck accidents. These causes can include driving in the areas behind and beside a truck where the driver has limited visibility, changing lanes abruptly in front of a truck, driving on the right side of a truck while the truck is making a right turn, merging improperly or too quickly, unsafe passing, and driving between two trucks.
