While any motor vehicle accident can be dangerous, accidents involving 18-wheeler trucks are especially likely to result in injuries or wrongful death. Because of their size, 18-wheelers can cause severe damage to a smaller vehicle during a truck accident, which makes them especially dangerous. In addition, 18-wheelers and semi-trucks cannot stop or turn as quickly as a smaller vehicles, which increases the risk of truck accident injuries at high speeds or in dangerous road conditions.
