How Truck Accidents Happen

Big Trucks Cause Big Accidents

Truck crashes can happen for many reasons. While semi trucks are, by their nature, more dangerous than cars and passenger vehicles, most truck drivers are safe drivers who understand the risks on the road. Unfortunately, even the smallest distraction or lapse in judgment can cause an accident. Even a single oversight during the maintenance of the vehicle can cause a problem down the road.
