Trucking accidents are unlike other motor vehicle accidents. Because of their immense size and weight, tractor-trailer trucks can cause extensive damage to just about anything that crosses their path. This includes passenger vehicles and the people inside them. When a collision like this happens, injuries can quickly turn fatal.
Trucking companies have a responsibility to monitor their drivers and maintain their equipment. Drivers who do not adhere to their specific licensing responsibilities or trucking laws, or who were driving carelessly, can also be found at fault.
