Motor vehicle collisions involving 18-wheeler trucks are some of the most devastating because their size and weight can cause considerable damage to passenger vehicles—and the occupants inside them. Even truck accidents that happen at slow speeds can result in serious injuries and even fatalities.
If you get into a minor car accident on your way to work or while running errands, you may just want to exchange information with the other motorist and be on your way. When you fail to take certain steps following a collision, though, you compromise your ability to recover compensation for any damages you incurred.

Collisions between passenger vehicles and commercial trucks are often devastating for the passenger vehicle occupants because 18-wheelers are so much heavier than cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks. It’s not uncommon for people involved in a collision with a big rig to sustain debilitating and even fatal injuries.
Semi-truck collisions are often devastating for the passenger vehicle occupants involved because trucks are so much larger than cars. Nothing highlights the dangers of this disparity more than actual crash statistics.
