If you have suffered injuries in an accident involving a big rig or a semitruck, our hearts truly go out to you. We know that any serious auto accident is traumatic, yet crashes involving large trucks are often more so. A fully loaded big rig (also called an 18-wheeler or tractor-trailer), extending up to 80 feet in length and weighing up to 40 tons, can hit with incredible destructive force. We hope you recover fully and soon.

Here, David talks about one recent case. In this incident, his client’s SUV was hit from behind by an 18-wheeler. The accident was even more serious because the force of the truck pushed the SUV into another big rig in front of it, crushing the vehicle between the two tractor-trailers.
