Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyers
Tractor trailer accidents are not only more complex after the fact; they are also much more severe and dangerous than most accidents involving cars of equal build and weight. A fully loaded tractor trailer can weigh at least 80,000 pounds, if not more. A normal passenger vehicle only weighs around 3,000 pounds. The difference in weight affects the amount of energy exuded from each type of vehicle.
The standard highway speed limit in Pennsylvania is 65 mph; this is considered a safe rate of travel for normal passenger vehicles. For an 18 wheeler, however, going this speed doubles the amount of energy the truck is exuding making any possible impact with the vehicle extremely dangerous.
Due to these facts, truck drivers and the truck companies who employ them need to be held to a higher standard of safety on the road. In turn, when and if a big rig accident occurs because of negligence, harming you or your loved ones, they also need to be held accountable for compensating you for your injuries and loss.
