The Devastating Consequences of an 18 Wheeler Accident
Trucking accidents usually result in serious and catastrophic injuries. In any accident involving an 18 wheeler, semi or other type of large commercial truck, the likelihood of sustaining
serious injury is extremely high, due to the massive size and weight of the vehicle. Colliding with a vehicle that could weigh in the range of 80,000 lbs. is extremely dangerous to any other driver or passenger involved. Although all types of
car accidents are dangerous, a collision with a truck often results in life-altering injuries such as brain injury, spinal injury leading to paralysis, or the innocent person dies at the scene or within a short period of time.
After an 18 wheeler has gone out of control in an accident, it is a possibility that the driver violated federal or state trucking regulations. It is imperative that all the evidence in Truck driver fatigue is a serious problem in the trucking industry and many individuals have lost their lives or sustained serious injuries due to truck drivers that were driving while tired, or who had been driving longer than is permitted.
