Commercial trucks are also referred to as 18-Wheelers, semi-trucks or tractor-trailers. In the last decade the number of commercial trucks involved in a deadly accident was increased by ten percent. One in every eight accident involving a commercial truck ended up to be fatal.
Commercial trucks are heavier and larger than any vehicle on the highway as they can weigh up to 80,000 pounds each. Nearly ninety percent of vehicles that are involved in an accident with a commercial truck are killed. Drivers and passengers of automobiles and motorcycles either are injured or killed in any accident that involves a semi-truck. Those individuals that do survive the accident are left with life altering injuries.

Many times the driver of the truck will come out of the accident without a scratch.
