- Debris or obstructions in the roadway
Tractor trailers can weigh over 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, creating an extremely dangerous situation when truck accidents involve smaller passenger vehicles. Drivers and passengers of cars, pickup trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles involved in large truck accidents often suffer catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injury, brain injury, and burn injuries, while the truck driver walks away from the accident virtually unscathed.
When the accident is caused by the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company, they should be held responsible for your injuries. The top Maryland, District of Columbia, and Virginia truck accident lawyers at The Schupak Law Firm can help you seek compensation for your injuries.

Bus accidents are especially tragic because of the large number of passengers inherently involved in the crash. Add to this the fact that buses are not equipped with safety devices, such as seat belts and airbags, which come standard on other motor vehicles, and you have the potential for a high number of injuries and deaths in every crash. Bus accidents may be caused by a variety of factors, but the number one cause of bus accidents is negligence.
Bus drivers may be negligent in operating the vehicle. In fact, inexperience and poor driver training contribute to many bus accidents each year. Driver fatigue and inattention also contribute to a significant number of bus accidents each year.
