Every year in the United States, truck accidents are responsible for thousands of personal injuries. It’s not uncommon for a trailer-tractor to collide with another, or with a regular-sized vehicle. However, in this case four trailer-tractors and three regular-sized vehicles were involved, causing a massive accident. The trucking industry is required to follow specific federal laws and regulations. The police are currently investigating what caused the accident, but negligence is usually the cause of most accidents. Although federal laws require truck drivers not to text or violate road laws, sometimes truck drivers still partake in negligent behavior. Because four peopled received injuries from this collision, personal injury lawsuits will more than likely be filed.
