A commercial truck accident can easily cause catastrophic injuries. Positioning an 80,000-pound big rig against a 3,000- to 4,000-pound passenger vehicle can mean life-changing injuries to the occupants of the latter.

Commercial trucks have designs that separate them physically from standard passenger vehicles. First is the significantly greater size and weight of the average 18-wheeler. This makes them extremely dangerous for smaller vehicles. Second, the severe blind spots – known as ‘No Zones’ – where the truck driver is unable to see other drivers on the road. Third is the greater amount of stopping distance needed for a heavy truck with hydraulic brakes. The special features of a commercial truck lead to unique types of traffic accidents in Prescott.
Truck drivers can be guilty of acts such as texting and driving, drunk driving, driving while fatigued, driving without a commercial license, speeding, and aggressive driving that increase the odds of a catastrophic or deadly traffic accident.
