Because of their enormous size, semi-trucks and other large trucks are more likely to cause fatal accidents than other vehicles. They require additional stopping time when they brake, and they cause an unusually large amount of damage when they hit other vehicles. Read on for more information about these serious collisions.
When assessing who is at fault for a truck accident, there are a number of factors to consider. The truck driver could have made an error, the trucking company could have coerced the driver into pursuing unsafe work practices, or the truck manufacturer could have produced a defective product. Because of this large number of possible factors, it can be difficult to assign liability for a crash caused by a semi-truck.
