While the number of large truck accidents is small compared to passenger cars, the percentage of commercial vehicle crashes that result in serious injuries or fatality is very high. Because of the size of a tractor – trailer which can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Truck accident litigation can be very complicated because the vehicles have different components than passenger cars and different regulations apply to trucking companies and truck drivers.
These accidents can be caused by a variety of reasons, but if negligence of the driver or the trucking company was the cause, you are likely entitled to substantial compensation. These “18 wheeler” or “semi-trucks” need an average of 40% more time to come to a stop than cars do, and if the brakes have not been adequately maintained, the chances of stopping in time are even less likely, making the avoidance of a sudden collision or road hazard extremely difficult. Additionally, due to many trucks being commercial vehicles, insurance can be a complicated matter and a huge potential issue.
