Trucks are very large and powerful vehicles that haul large loads and are subject to rigid state and federal laws and driving safety regulations.

According to the US Department of Transportation, most trucking accident collisions involve commercial trucks due to a driver’s excess speed,  tiresome traffic, weather precipitation,  and road design.

Construction work zones, curves and intersections are other factors that cause trucking accidents and severe and catastrophic injuries.
