Truck Driver, While Attempting To Fix His Own Truck, Dies From Injuries Sustained After Being Struck By Another Truck On The Interstate.

Truck accidents can greatly disrupt the lives of the victims and their families. If you have been in an accident involving a truck, the expert truck accident attorneys here at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm can help guide you through this trying and difficult process.

An investigation revealed that a 1987 Peterbilt truck was partially disabled in the roadway of I-86. The truck operator, Kyle W.

Victims involved in truck accidents may not be sure of what to do next or how to begin to recover for the damages caused. This is why victims should turn to one of the experienced truck accident attorney experts at our Boston law firm to help guide them through this complicated litigation process.
