U.S. highways are the backbone of interstate freight transportation. Thousands of tractor-trailers travel millions of miles every year in order to bring products to consumers. Almost daily, the news reports an accident involving a tractor-trailer, usually involving other motorists. No one has chance in a collision with a large truck. In addition to causing substantial property damage, the injuries sustained in a car-truck accident can range from catastrophic to deadly.

When these accidents involved tractor trailers, 98% of the fatalities occur to individuals who are in passenger vehicle.
