Wrongful Death Attorney in Delaware — Truck Accidents

When You Have Lost a Loved One in a Fatal Truck Accident

Most commercial trucks are more than 50 feet long, and some can weigh up to 75,000 pounds. When a passenger vehicle collides with a semi, big rig, tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler, the consequences are often devastating and frequently fatal. Traffic fatalities in truck accidents number more than 5,000 every year. If you have lost a loved one because of the negligence or carelessness of a truck driver or a trucking company, you want an experienced lawyer to help you protect your interests.
