Being involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler is often a tragic experience. In many of these situations, there is a serious injury and sometimes even death following a collision with these large trucks. Being only six percent of the traffic on the road, these big trucks manage to be involved in fifteen percent of fatal accidents that occur on roads in Texas. After looking at the numbers more in-depth, it is no surprise why these trucks are involved in so many accidents. While a passenger car weighs up to 8,000 pounds, a fully-loaded 18-wheeler can weigh in at a staggering 80,000 pounds. In these collisions, the truck always prevails leaving the much smaller passenger vehicle and its occupants with serious damage.
