Any motor vehicle accident can have serious consequences, but when a crash involves a truck, the resulting property damage and injuries can be even more severe. While large cars and sports utility vehicles (SUVs), may weigh four or five thousand pounds, a loaded 18-wheeler or semi truck often weighs up to 80,000 pounds, creating a disparity that puts other drivers on the road in greater danger during an accident.
