Truck accidents affect thousands of people every year, and can cause serious injury and may even be fatal. Semi-trucks have the capacity to cause catastrophic accidents, largely due to their enormous mass and size. Because of the inherent dangers that tractor-trailers can pose to other vehicles, the industry is highly regulated by state and federal law. While these regulations exist to make trucks as safe as possible, the unfortunate truth is that they are not always followed.
