Representing Truck Accident Victims In Hibbing
An argument can be made that there has never been a safer time to be a driver or passenger in a motor vehicle. Safety regulations have never been more strict, and safety equipment like seat belts and air bags have never been more effective. Unfortunately, all the modern engineering in the world cannot overcome the fact that in a battle between a tractor-trailer and a passenger vehicle, the 40-ton big rig will emerge the victor.
