THE DANGERS OF 18-WHEELERS & COMMERCIAL VEHICLES
Semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles are as dangerous as they are huge, loud, and intimidating. These massive trucks often cause catastrophic 18-wheeler accidents on the road. This is why drivers who operate them are required to have special commercial vehicle licenses.
Additionally, these vehicles are specially regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT). These DOT regulations require truck drivers and the companies they work for to follow specific rules. If you were involved in an accident with one of these vehicles, then it is possible that the operator or the trucking company failed to follow guidelines mandated by the government. If that is the case, then you may be entitled to compensation for damages
