Truck Accidents

The Dangers of Tractor-Trailers

Tractor-trailer crashes can be much more severe than car crashes. A tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds which is equivalent to about 16 cars. Also, they lack good braking ability as well as maneuverability. On top of all of these hazards, tractor-trailers also sometimes transport dangerous or hazardous material that can be flammable or explosive. Some common causes of tractor-trailer crashes included improperly loaded cargo, improper driving, rear-ending, left turns, fatigue and drunk driving.
