If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a commercial truck, such as a 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer or semi, the process for obtaining compensation for all your losses will look similar to a car accident claim, but may also have substantial differences.
Though the weight restrictions on commercial vehicles vary from state to state, under federal guidelines, a semi or 18-wheeler can carry up to 80,000 pounds. When a truck carrying that much weight collides with a passenger vehicle, the consequences can be devastating. Unfortunately, it happens way too often, and for a variety of reasons.
