Just about everywhere you look on the road, there are large tractor-trailer trucks. It doesn’t matter the time of day or where you are on the road, if you’re driving for at least five minutes then chances are you will see some kind of commercial truck or trailer along your path. While these big rigs might not be fun to drive with, they are a very necessary part of our society. However, they can pose some real hazards on the road for other drivers.
In any case, when an accident involves a large truck it often ends up fatal for anyone inside the other vehicle involved in the accident. If not fatal, the injuries suffered are usually very serious and often life-altering.
While many trucking companies and drivers do everything they can to keep the roads safe, there are other companies and operators that take short cuts. There are still other drivers and trucking companies that have safety issues despite their best efforts to avoid accidents.
There are many state and federal regulations in place to help prevent truck accidents from occurring, including how many trailers a truck can pull, how much weight a truck can carry, and how many consecutive hours a driver can operate the vehicle. Likewise, as with all drivers on the road, commercial truck drivers also have to adhere to all other driving laws in place, including texting and speeding laws. When the driver of one of these vehicles chooses to break the law and causes a serious accident, including injury or death to other people, then he could be held responsible for his actions.
