Semi trucks and 18-wheelers are large, powerful machines that are used for the transportation of heavy, bulky loads. Although they are important for commercial shipping, these vehicles are also a danger to other motorists and can be a cause of devastating accidents. Frustratingly, all other drivers may be at risk of accidents with 18-wheelers if the driver of the truck, the company in charge of the vehicle, or the manufacturer of the truck fails to adhere to safety laws.
If you or someone you love has suffered in a collision with an 18-wheeler or semi truck, there may be legal methods for you to take action against the negligent party at fault for the accident.
