For a very long time, our nation has relied on large commercial trucks and tractor-trailers to transport goods and services across the country. These massive motor vehicles often weigh in excess of 70,000 lbs, and when not operated carefully, are known to cause devastating accidents. Most frustrating of all is that many of these accidents may have been avoided if not for the negligence of certain parties.
