What Causes Tractor Trailer Semi-Truck Accidents
Large commercial “big rigs” or “18-wheelers” are the biggest, heaviest vehicles permitted on Charlotte interstates and roadways. Because of their sheer size and weight, they can quickly become unstable at highway speeds. When drivers lose control, their tractor trailer can collide with other vehicles and cause serious injury or even death. State and federal agencies have tried to reduce the risks posed by these large semi-trucks by enacting more and more extensive regulations for the trucking industry. Despite their best efforts, however, we are still seeing an increase in serious truck accidents both here in Charlotte and throughout North Carolina as a whole.
