If you are like most highway drivers, you do not like to travel alongside a semi truck for longer than you have to. Driving next to a truck can make you feel trapped, as if there is no room to make a quick and safe exit. These concerns are not without merit. Truck drivers do not have full visibility of the road and cars around them. If a truck driver makes a sudden lane change, or fails to stop in enough time, serious accidents can occur. When they do, Charbonnet Law Firm, LLC, is here to help.
