Motor vehicles maintain a very important role in society. They not only assist with the transportation of individuals to and from their destinations, but they also help with the transportation of shipments. Large trucks, such as semi-trucks and tractor-trailer trucks, are extremely valuable in Missouri and elsewhere when it comes to intrastate and interstate commerce. While there are many benefits for these large vehicles, there are also several risks on the roadways caused by their constant travel throughout the nation.
As previously discussed, truck drivers are often tasked with driving long distances. This also means that they are often faced with long hours behind the wheel. While federal trucking regulations work to reduce the impact fatigued driving in the trucking industry has on society, the unfortunate reality is that many drowsy and overworked truck drivers travel on the roadways each and every day.
When a truck accident occurs, victims are often left with some of the most traumatic accident injuries. These massive vehicles tend to cause large accident sites that can result in tremendous amounts of damage.
