Description An accident with a semi-truck is very different than any other kind of collision. The cargo the truck is carrying, and its sheer size has an enormous effect on the gravity of the injuries sustained. A fully loaded semi weighs 80,000 lbs.

When a car collides with a big rig, the impact often leads to permanent injuries or death. The car itself is usually crushed and no longer recognizable.

There are federal safety regulations that drivers must adhere to when operating a commercial tractor-trailer. These regulations are in place in order to avoid serious injury to the truck driver or other. When those regulations are not followed, the consequences are disastrous. Some leading factors that contribute to tractor-trailer crashes include:

  • Poorly maintained equipment
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving without adequate sleep
  • Drug or alcohol intoxication
  • Moving too fast for weather conditions
  • Risky driving behavior such as rapidly changing lanes
