These vehicles are extremely large and when they are loaded, can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Trucking companies often put pressure on their employees to drive and arrive at their destination faster, which can lead to unsafe driving habits.

Proving Fault in Truck Accident Cases
After you have been injured in a truck accident, it may be difficult to determine who was to blame.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
