Semi-trailer trucks are big, heavy vehicles, and they can leave a huge amount of destruction in their wake when they are involved in a crash. This means that people are both more likely to be injured in a tractor-trailer crash than a car crash and that the injuries are more likely to be severe.
A previous post here told of a semi-truck crash on an Interstate highway in Pennsylvania. This crash is a good example of the level of destructiveness that a truck crash could be capable of. A truck driver reportedly failed to reduce speed as it approached a work zone on the Interstate. The truck apparently rear-ended a sport utility vehicle. The SUV was immediately engulfed in flames, killing both of its occupants. Another driver was also injured in the ensuing chain reaction crash.
Truck drivers and trucking companies have a duty to other people on the road. Truck drivers must keep a proper lookout and adjust their driving to suit local conditions. The vast majority of truck drivers do this, but when they don't, and another person is injured, the truck driver and trucking company may be liable in a personal injury lawsuit.
