Truck Accidents Involving Speeding
Commercial truck drivers have a greater responsibility when they get behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler. Today’s tractor trailers can weigh between 40,000 and 80,000 pounds fully loaded. It takes a long time to stop a vehicle weighing that much, as much as one-third longer than the average auto. This makes an 18-wheeler a deadly weapon under the right circumstances.
The speed of a semi-truck is critically important, as well as the reaction time of its driver. If a truck this size is speeding down the freeway and the driver is impaired in any way, the results can be devastating. Trailers can jackknife or roll over. Crashes of this nature often involve more than one automobile, along with serious injuries or fatalities.
If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident with a speeding truck, then you may have sustained serious, life threatening injuries. Often, the survivors require ongoing, expensive medical care. Dealing with doctors and insurance companies adds an additional element of stress and confusion. The laws in every state are different.
