The size of tractor trailers puts passenger cars at a serious disadvantage. Some tractor trailers can weigh over 80,000 pounds. When something that size collides with an automobile, the injuries to the occupants can be devastating and deadly.
In addition, there are sections of the Vehicle Code applicable to trucking companies and commercial truck drivers, as well as training and licensing requirements specific for truck drivers making their defense in truck accident cases more difficult and, therefore, better for plaintiffs.
