Big Truck Crash

For many people, driving on America's roadways does not have to be a costly and dangerous activity. Most drivers are careful and so are the majority of truck drivers who share the roadway. Yet the potential for an accident exists if any driver is unwary, negligent, unprepared, or distracted. That can be made more serious if there is a big rig accident involving hazardous or flammable material. The truth is, few big rig drivers are injured in such crashes, while many of the passenger car drivers can be seriously injured or killed. And while hazardous driving conditions can cause such accidents, the majority occur on rural roads during weekday, daylight hours. That means it doesn't take much to cause such a tragedy. Therefore extra caution is required on the part of both truck passenger vehicle drivers. If not, they may need a truck accident attorney to help with the consequences.

Fast Facts

  • A big truck is considered any truck with a gross vehicle weight of 10,000 pounds or more.
  • Sudden braking or turning can cause a big truck to jackknife and result in an accident, but such accidents may be caused by sudden, lane-changes on the part of other drivers.
