Logging trucks continue to be a hazard on North Carolina roads

North Carolina drivers are familiar with the many unique hazards North Carolina roads offer. Along with hilly terrain and narrow roads, logging trucks are a common sight. But, these logging trucks are often a serious hazard for drivers.

Logging is a major business in North Carolina. The state is home to a number of mountain chains and the forest products manufacturing business is the top industry in the state. Sharing the road with logging trucks can result in dangerous accidents. Just recently, a 15-year-old boy died when the pickup he was riding in collided with a logging truck in North Carolina. Logging trucks are much larger than other vehicles on the road. Their loads can shift and cause their cargo to spill. And, if a logging truck driver is distracted or fatigued behind the wheel, it can spell disaster for other drivers.

If a person has been injured in a logging truck accident, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can help their client figure out what happened to cause the serious accident. They can visit the accident scene and interview witnesses, review police reports and help determine who was negligent. An attorney understands that an accident involving a logging truck can lead to serious injuries, which results in extensive medical bills and lost wages. Compensation may be available for these medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

A logging truck accident often involves serious injuries or even death to the victims. It is important to hold negligent drivers responsible for their mistakes so that they don't harm anyone else.
