Portland Truck Accident Lawyer
Semi trucks pose a special threat to motorists because of their tremendous size and weight. Tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, which is 20 times more than the average passenger car. This dramatic weight difference plus the increased risks of operating such large vehicles can spell catastrophe for motorists. The U.S. Department of Transportation reported that over 100,000 people were injured in large truck crashes in 2006, and almost 5,000 were killed.
