The trucking industry remains an important one. Whether it is for a company requiring shipments of good or individuals seeking the delivery of personal goods, the trucking industry significantly impacts interstate and intrastate commerce. Although the benefits are apparent, trucking companies and truck drivers in general do present some risks on the roadways.
Truck drivers in Massachusetts and elsewhere are often tasked with driving long distances, which often require spending long hours behind the wheel. In order to meet the demands that the trucking company has set, truck drivers may driver longer than outlined by regulations or faster than they should. This could result in a serious and even fatal truck crash.

This can result in much hardship and pain and suffering of those impacted. Thus, it is important to consider the legal recourses available. A civil action, such as a personal injury action of wrongful death claim, could help address these losses while also assist with liability in the matter as well.
