Driving for many people in Delaware is an essential part of our lives. However, traveling on the open road can be a horrific experience when an 18-wheeler comes speeding towards you. These monstrous vehicles can become dangerous and even deadly if those who operate them do not act responsible while on the highways. Truckers have special federal and state regulations that they must abide by, which include everything from the number of hours they drive to amount of weight they can transport. When these regulations are ignored, the consequences are often always disastrous. Approximately 234 injuries and 15 fatalities are caused every year in the state of Delaware due to a truck accident. If you were involved in this type of accident, you can be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and for pain and suffering.
