The Basics

Tractor Trailer Accidents

When a tractor trailer comes into contact with a smaller vehicle, the results and injuries can be catastrophic. The average tractor trailer weighs between 12,100 and 80,000 pounds. A vehicle of this size and weight traveling at 65 miles per hour is very difficult to stop or maneuver quickly.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a wreck involving a tractor trailer, you need personal injury lawyers who have experience with trucking cases. These cases are very different from a typical automobile wreck case, so you will want an attorney who knows how to locate and collect related data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, identify the correct corporate entities, evaluate the vehicle safety check inspections, and request and review the bill of lading and driving log.

Although tractor trailer wrecks are not as statistically common as auto accidents, when they do occur the injuries can be severe. Common tractor trailer wreck injuries include traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, spinal injuries, burn injuries, and even death.
