It’s frightening to read about tractor trailer accidents in the news. The bigger the vehicle, the higher the risk for serious injuries and deaths. Thousands of semis, 18-wheelers, tractor trailers and other commercial trucks are driven every day through North Carolina, raising that risk, especially on highways where trucks are traveling at high speeds. In fact, the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles most recent “Crash Facts” show that in 2016 commercial trucks were responsible for 14,004 injuries and 154 deaths on the state’s roads.
