HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY FROM AN 18 WHEELER WRECK
Are you scared if you are driving next to an 18 wheeler? You should be. 583 people a year are killed going under the side of an 18 wheeler according to the National Highway Safety Institute “NHTSA”. Many more are seriously injured.
In 1953, Jayne Mansfield was decapitated when her convertible went under the back of a semi. Congress passed a law and required the cow catcher on the back of semi’s. In 2014, the NHTSA requested voluntary compliance by semis to put the cow catcher called side underride guards on 18 wheelers. The industry has refused to do this. If you want your roads safer write your congressman and ask them to pass the bill. The trucking lobby has blocked it, and meanwhile hundreds of people are killed each year.
The Sheller Law Firm is handling people who are seriously injured or killed in these types of crashes or any other type of 18 wheeler crash.
