Commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When they travel at a high rate of speed, on highways and roads packed with much smaller vehicles, and if there is any sort of negligence on the part of the driver or trucking company, these trucks are capable of causing an unbelievable amount of damage when they are involved in an accident. The majority of truck accidents result in catastrophic injuries or death.
