America’s roads are among the busiest in the entire world, full of passenger cars, motorcycles, and millions of trucks that transport goods all across the country. The combination of vehicles of all sizes on the roads can be hazardous, and it is especially dangerous when a commercial truck is the cause of the problem.
Accidents involving both passenger vehicles and large trucks are very severe, especially for the driver and passengers of the smaller cars. In fact, national statistics show that passengers of cars account for approximately 94% of the deaths in truck accidents. Although safety features of cars have improved greatly over the past few years, these automobiles are still not match for the sheer weight and size of a fully loaded truck.
A commercial semi-truck or tractor-trailer can be up to 75-feet long, and can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When a large truck causes an accident on the road, the situation can quickly involve multiple vehicles.
Truck crashes or collisions can stem from a truck suddenly stopping, or worse, jackknifing and blocking multiple lanes. The vehicles behind the truck may crash in an effort to avoid the commercial vehicle, resulting in a chain reaction of crashes. This scenario often occurs in poor weather or road conditions or in areas of poor visibility, such as those with fog, snow or ice.
