With their large amount of force and gigantic size, commercial trucks are some of the most powerful obstacles that other people on the road have to deal with on a daily basis. Because of their large size, commercial vehicles are ideal for moving large amounts of product throughout the United States in as little trips as possible. Sadly, due to the size of these vehicles, when a much smaller vehicle is involved in an accident with a commercial truck, it is usually catastrophic. When injuries are not fatal or not resulting in a coma, they are often severe, permanent injuries that change the victim’s life forever.
Sometimes, accidents just happen and there was no way to prevent it or see it coming—but since a lot of skill goes into operating a truck of this magnitude, many times, the accident is the direct result of a negligent trucker or liability falls upon the trucking company that employed the truck driver.
Did you know?
One careless mistake or poor judgment call, such as a trucker not getting enough sleep, can result in a catastrophic truck crash.
Because of this, it is not alarming that the cause of truck crashes is often directly related to the recklessness of the truck driver, the truck driver employer, or the party assigned to properly maintain the truck.
