Many people never prepare for the fact that they could become involved in a tractor-trailer accident. However, this is always a reality, especially when you travel on major roads and share the roads with these large vehicles. Trucks weigh as much as 80,000 or more pounds, which means that they are capable of causing catastrophic harm in the event of an accident. In 2014, it was reported that 155 people were killed in fatal truck accidents due to the negligence of others in Georgia.
