There are several reasons that Tractor Trailers are so dangerous:

1. Size: The large size and weight of these vehicles makes them inherently risky to drive on the road

2. Bad Brakes: The size and weight, coupled with poor braking capability, means that a semi-truck going 60 mph would require almost 400 feet to come to a complete stop.

3. Agility: The size, weight and brakes make these vehicles too cumbersome to be easily maneuvered.

4. Cargo: You simply never know what is inside a Tractor Trailer’s trailer. There may be giant steel planks or flammable liquids; making an already devastating crash all the worse.

Due largely to these factors, trucking companies must meed numerous state and federal rules and regulations. These policies keep the roads safer, and increase your odds of proving innocence in a lawsuit involving a Tractor Trailer Accident. With restrictions on how heavy the cargo, how long the driver can rest and what roads the driver must take, chances are good that at least one of the rules has been violated.
