Massive trucks fill our roadways. This is primarily because we rely on these large vehicles to transport goods and shipments across the state and the country. Truck drivers play a major role in intrastate and interstate commerce. Because of that, they are under much pressure to make timely deliveries or be ahead of schedule. While this might be beneficial for a trucking company, an overworked and fatigued truck driver is a very dangerous presence on the roadways.
A truck crash is a serious and often tragic accident. Because a motor vehicle cannot stand up to the size and weight of a commercial truck, it is likely that not only is the smaller vehicle severely damaged, the occupants in the vehicle have likely suffered serious or life threatening injuries.
