Fight Back To Win with a West Virginia Coal Truck Accident Injury Lawyers
Coal trucks are among the largest commercial vehicles on the roads, as they move coal over the hills and slopes of West Virginia. According to the West Virginia Citizen Action Group, these trucks have been weighed at nearly 200,000 pounds. A recent article published by Knight Ridder/Tribune Business News reports that more than 85% of them are overweight. When the driver of one of these giants loses control and causes a trucking accident, every other vehicle and driver sharing the road are in danger.
