Common Causes Of Tractor-Trailer Wrecks

Some people refer to Tractor-Trailers as "40 Tons of Death on Wheels." Because of their size, even a low impact collision can lead to serious injuries. A typical, fully loaded large commercial truck can weigh over 80,000 pounds while the average passenger automobile weighs approximately 3,000 pounds.

Wrecks with these tractor-trailers often result in very serious injuries or death because of:

  1. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles.
  2. Their poor braking ability. The average tractor-trailer traveling at 60 miles per hour needs approximately 350 feet to come to a stop.
  3. Their Limited Maneuverability.
  4. And sometimes because of the flammable, explosive or otherwise dangerous cargo.
