Very rarely does a motor vehicle accident involving a tractor trailer and a car or passenger vehicle end with minor injuries. Frequently a trucking accident results in catastrophic or debilitating injuries. Unfortunately, due to their sheer size and weight compared to a car, a commercial vehicle accident often culminates with the death or one or more persons inside the car that was involved. With that, traffic accident fatalities involving tractor trailers are extraordinarily high.
