As a result of the massive size and weight of tractor-trailers, dump trucks, garbage trucks, fuel haulers, and car haulers, most collisions with regular vehicles, even SUVs, result in serious injuries. Because trucks tend to be driven by people delivering goods for companies, the trucks are usually insured by commercial policies. Companies and commercial insurers have a lot to lose, so they are the most aggressive in defending their drivers and in attempting to shift the blame for truck collisions.
Truck drivers routinely drive hundreds, even thousands of miles, frequently without adequate rest and sometimes without proper training or supervision. The unfortunate result is tens of thousands (amongst the millions on the road) of tired, inexperienced, and under-trained drivers behind the wheel of large dangerous vehicles. Another risk of large fleets of heavy equipment is that improperly maintained vehicles can cause serious accidents, even when the driver is cautious.
