Think, for a moment, of the feelings you experience when you pull alongside a large semi-truck traveling along Richmond’s roadways. You almost cannot help but feel a small sense of trepidation being so close to such a massive vehicle, given the potential for damage that it presents if you were to collide with it. Sadly, many of those that we here at Shumate, Flaherty, Eubanks and Baechtold have worked with have seen and experienced this destructive potential firsthand. Accidents involving large trucks can cause irreparable damages to vehicles as well as extensive injuries. The net result of these may be inordinate expenses that you are left to deal with.
