Most Pennsylvania motorists are familiar with how terrifying it can be to share the road with massive tractor-trailers. When a truck accident involving one of these huge vehicles occurs, the results are often devastating. If a person actually survives injuries suffered in a truck collision, the road to recovery may be wrought with challenge, often including legal action against the truck driver deemed responsible.
There are laws governing semi trucks that may not affect cars. Most often, such regulations pertain to the weight of loads being hauled and how many hours a trucker may stay behind the wheel without rest. Negligence in these or other areas often results in roadway tragedies.
