A semi-truck pulling an empty trailer weighs roughly 35,000 pounds. A semi-truck pulling a fully loaded trailer can weigh approximately 80,000 pounds. In comparison, the average car weighs approximately 2,800 pounds. Therefore, on average, a semi-truck is approximately 20 times the size of a standard car. A collision between these two types of vehicles often results in serious injuries or fatalities to the occupants of the car.

These injuries can include bone fractures, lacerations, neck injuries, back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other serious injuries.

Given the significantly increased danger of a semi-truck compared to a normal-sized vehicle, truck drivers are held to a higher standard of care when operating their vehicles. A truck driver must obtain a commercial driver’s license, which requires them to pass a background check aimed to discover the criminal history and driving history, a medical examination, a skills test to prove the driver is capable of operating a semi-truck in a variety of scenarios, and a written knowledge test. Truck drivers are expected to put safety above any other priority. Unfortunately, not all truck drivers put safety first. It is not uncommon for truck drivers to drive on a lack of sleep, drive distracted, violate the rules of the road, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with improperly loaded cargo, and exhibit other unsafe behavior.
