Tractor-Trailers

Compassionate legal guidance from Cyrus, Adkins & Walker

A tractor-trailer is a general term for all vehicles made up of a truck, or towing engine, and a trailer. These are almost always used for commercial purposes, varying based on how they brake and how they connect to each other.

No matter the nature of the truck, collisions involving tractor-trailers are a leading cause of accident fatalities. The power of the engines and the sheer weight of the cargo can destroy a passenger vehicle.

If you believe your tractor-trailer accident in Huntington led to an injury or the wrongful death of a loved one, call the tractor-trailer accident lawyers at Cyrus, Adkins & Walker. We can help you through this painful time.
