Truck drivers are expected to exercise a higher standard of care when operating their commercial motor vehicles than other drivers on the road. This is due to the nature of the vehicles they are driving, and, often times, the nature of the loads they carry. Another reason truck drivers are held to a higher standard is that a truck accident can be devastating, not only for them, but also for the drivers and passengers in the vehicles they impact. No matter the severity of the impact on the lives of the truck driver, it is important that they are held accountable, if they are determined to be at fault.

Any accident involving an 18-wheeler has the potential to be devastating for all parties involved. This is especially true when a truck accident involves other vehicles that are much smaller. The nature of semi tractor trailers makes them particularly dangerous and, at times, lethal. The size disparity between a semi and other vehicles, paired with the often dangerous, hazardous or toxic loads that they carry, make most other vehicles a poor candidate for survival against a semi.
