Merely stepping onto the property of another should not be a frightening event. This is especially true when an individual has been invited onto the property in question, such as when he or she is a customer in a store or he or she is invited to someone's house for a social gathering. Yet, far too often, property owners fail to adequately maintain the safety of their premises. This failure can result in serious injuries and deaths to unsuspecting individuals.
Semi-trucks play an important role in our society. They move goods from place-to-place, allowing consumers to have access to the goods and services they desire. Yet, despite these benefits posed by the trucking industry, these massive vehicles, their drivers and truck companies also pose significant risks to innocent motorists. This is because the sheer size of these vehicles can leave a wake of devastation and death when driven negligently.
