Vehicle Accidents On The Job

Mile for mile, truck drivers are safer drivers with fewer accidents. However, they cover a lot more miles in a day, which increases the actual risk of being involved in a crash.

The Roanoke law firm of Potter Mariano PLC, represents commercial drivers and other employees who have been injured in traffic accidents while on duty. Our experienced lawyers will assert your rights to medical care and fair compensation, to help you recover from your injuries and get back to earning a living.
