Did you know that large trucks such as big rigs, tractor trailers, and other commercial vehicles are involved in many motor vehicle accident fatalities? Did you also know that large trucks are the cause of a significant amount of the injuries sustained in motor vehicle crashes? The chance of being seriously injured or killed when a commercial truck is involved in an accident is very high.
Because of the large size of the trucks, the long hours their drivers spend behind the wheel on long trips, and the failure of some drivers to comply with speed limits because they are trying to meet deadlines, one is not surprised that trucks are involved in many motor vehicle accidents.
