Reasons for Truck Accidents
Tractor trailers can be 20-30 times heavier than a passenger car and loaded trailers can take 20-40% longer than passenger cars to come to a complete standstill. Tractor trailers are the most common types of commercial vehicles that cause serious accidents. But did you know that many other commercial vehicles can also cause devastating accidents?
If you have an accident with a truck, you must stay at the scene of the accident until the police arrive. Also, call 911 right away; tractor-trailer accidents usually involve serious injuries, and you or other people in the vehicle may require immediate medical attention. Check other vehicles to see if drivers and passengers need medical assistance.
