Truck accidents occur every day across the United States. The results are many times catastrophic as they lead to death or very serious injuries to the passengers and driver of the vehicle involved. A loaded semi-truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, while a car typically weighs around 3,500, so the odds are not in favor of the passenger vehicle when a collision happens.
There are many reasons why so many truck accidents happen across the country. Some of these reasons are specific to trucks more so than passenger vehicles. These reasons include:

If you’ve suffered injuries or the loss of a loved one as a result of an accident involving a truck, you should seek legal counsel to protect your rights as there are many complexities involved with accidents that involve semi-trucks.
