Accidents involving trucks and semis are almost always devastating, if not deadly. Given the size and load of the trucks, any collision with a car or smaller vehicle can be life-altering. Because of this, trucking companies have strict guidelines and laws they are to adhere to, in an effort to protect other motorists. When a truck driver fails to do so, the other motorist almost always pays the price.
