18-Wheeler Accidents

The law office of Cyrus, Adkins & Walker

18-wheelers are known by several names, including the nicknames "Mack truck" or "big rig." They are commonly made up of a truck body with 8 wheels, in sets of two, and a trailer with 10 wheels. These impressive vehicles can carry over a hundred thousand pounds of cargo and when they crash, they can kill.

Many commercial drivers are paid by the number of loads they successfully deliver, or the number of miles they cover in a certain amount of time. An unexpected effect of these policies is that some drivers will ignore safety precautions in order to increase their pay.

18-wheelers have their operation regulated by State and Federal laws. The maximum weight and conditions under which they can be driven vary from state to state.
