When loads shift, trucks can get into accidents

A semi-truck driver has to always remain conscious that his or her vehicle is far different than the passenger cars around them. It's larger, it's heavier, it requires longer stopping distances and it may even be top-heavy, making rollover accidents more likely. Drivers need to know how to carefully handle these vehicles to reduce the risks.

Overloaded trucks; insecure loads are dangerous

Although it seems like they can haul just about anything, semi-trucks, just like any other vehicle, have their limits when it comes to how much weight they can pull. Once they are overweight, or if they are improperly loaded, they become extremely dangerous to those in vehicles sharing the road with them.

Negligent truck drivers may also be liable for the damages truck accident victims suffer.
