What Causes Truck Accidents?

When a law-abiding motorist in a car or on a motorcycle collides with the negligent driver of a much larger, more powerful commercial vehicle such as an 18-wheeler or semitrailer, catastrophic injury and wrongful death can result.

Innocent accident victims living with traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and fatal injuries to drivers and passengers have a friend and champion in our experienced Boise personal injury law firm — Idaho's injury lawyers — Holzer Edwards, Chartered.

Kurt Holzer and John Edwards have seen firsthand the extent of damage to vehicles, and harm to people from these horrific accidents. They have been to your homes and hospital rooms.
