The Dangers Of 18-Wheeler Accidents

Crashes involving 18-wheelers often cause the most devastating vehicular accidents. Not only are these commercial vehicles several times larger than the average car, but they also can carry a payload of 80,000 pounds or more. This is why the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act and the U.S. Department of Transportation's regulations place strict safety standards on the trucking industry.

Typical Injuries In 18-Wheeler Accidents

Drivers or passengers in cars make up 70 percent of the victims in truck accidents. Injuries often include:

  • Spine injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Paraplegia
  • Injuries resulting in wrongful death

Accidents represent a financial liability for trucking companies and their insurers, so their legal teams immediately spring into action to develop their defense. With this in mind, shouldn't you also have the same protection?
