Fatal truck accidents occur on the roads in the United States every day. An approximate 400,000+ trucking accidents, including commercial trucks and tractors, occur every year. With such numbers, unfortunately, the injuries to passengers and drivers alike proportionally rise in 18-wheeler accidents.
These trucks usually have large scale and massive weight. 18-wheeler truck drivers typically don’t have time or opportunities to correct their course in an accident. The state of California passed many laws regarding the weight and size of trucks for precisely this reason. These truck drivers might fail to break in time or make a wide turn, colliding with a compact vehicle. These usually result in catastrophic damage. Driving trucks and larger vehicles requires great caution, care, and diligence.
