Hundreds of individuals are injured every year in tractor-trailer, semi, and 18-wheeler accidents. Unfortunately, these types of events frequently end in severe injuries.
Long hours behind the wheel of a truck for too many truck drivers reduces their alertness and often leads to careless behaviour on the road. Because of the sheer force and size of the vehicles involved, truck accidents can inflict catastrophic damage.
