A tractor trailer is a combination of the tractor, which contains the cab where the driver sits and pulls the load. The trailer (or several trailers) houses the cargo and gets pulled by the tractor. These trucks are also known as semi-trailers or semis. Tractor trailers can weigh 80,000 pounds. Drivers are often exhausted and overworked, leading to driving errors and bad judgment. Loads can also fall off trucks because of improper securing.
If you have been involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer, it can be a life-changing experience. Recoverable damages could include medical costs, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, physical impairment, disfigurement, permanent injury, physical pain, property damage, and other suffering. Because these types of accidents can have complex liability laws, retaining legal counsel as soon as possible is critical.
