Imagine driving your child to school when you are struck by an 18-wheeler on the highway. Alternatively, maybe you were driving to work when the 18-wheeler pulled into your lane without the driver seeing your vehicle there. Both are very serious situations that drivers face every day.
As a parent and someone who takes the highway often, exposure to these dangerous vehicles while you carry the most precious cargo is a serious threat. Here are a few regulations that the United States has in place to help prevent these accidents. If the driver violated them in your case, you have a right to seek compensation for your injuries and the damage that driver caused.
