Trucks, or 18-wheelers or semis, are much more dangerous in a motor vehicle accident because of their sheer size. Due to the high risk, truck drivers and their companies have a responsibility to other drivers to maintain their vehicles and operate them safely. Failing to do so can have harmful, even deadly, consequences.

Liability for Truck Accidents
There are many reasons for truck accidents, and the blame could fall on a variety of places.

Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
