Truck accidents involving 18-wheelers are responsible for a number of serious injuries and huge costs for Norfolk drivers every year. While it may initially seem like individual drivers are to blame for accidents (and sometimes they are), in some cases it may be that employer negligence within the trucking company is responsible. When employers fail to uphold certain safety measures, the result can be devastating injury to innocent victims.
