Tractor trailer accidents are one of the most dangerous accidents that an individual can be involved in, if for nothing else, just because of the sheer mass that’s involved with a tractor trailer, you’re talking about a truck that if it hits you the damage it can potentially cause is going to be much more significant than if you were involved in an automobile accident with a car of a similar size to yours.

The weight can be four or five times as much as the weight involved in a regular vehicle, and because of that, the impact is going to be that much more severe. And as a result, the chance of sustaining a significant injury is going to be that much more enhanced.
