     Big trucks travel at high speeds and occupy much of the road way. There is very little room for driver error. Unfortunately, drivers of big rigs do often error. When they do, the results may be catastrophic. We have successfully brought cases against major trucking companies and retail giants for their drivers' negligence resulting in injuries and deaths.
