Have you been in a Texas 18-wheeler or semi-truck accident and are unsure of what to do in the aftermath? It is doubtlessly daunting, especially if you've never been in an accident, but […]

This myth makes sense at first; the trucker was behind the wheel, so the trucker must be the person who's liable the crash.
