The potential of a motor vehicle accident is an inherent risk taken by all drivers, passengers and pedestrians. The ensuing injuries can be significant and potentially life-threatening, depending on the circumstances surrounding the collision. The potential for severe injuries and fatalities is increased when commercial trucks are involved. The relative size of these vehicles compared to passenger cars, as well as their potentially dangerous cargo, often make the resulting damages worse than other accidents.
