Bensalem Pennsylvania 18-wheeler accident attorney
There are many different types of injuries that can occur as a result of being involved in a motor vehicle accident with an 18-wheeler. One of the most common is to be crushed under the weight of a loaded trailer, which could weigh upwards of 50000 lbs. when fully loaded. Two ways that you could be crushed is if the 18-wheeler ran up an embankment with the tires on one side of the truck and then flipped on its side on top of an automobile that was traveling next to it.
Another way to be crushed would be if an 18-wheeler made a right-hand turn from the left-hand lane while at the same time an automobile was trying to pass it on the right. When this happens, the rear wheels of the 18-wheeler can literally run over the adjacent car on the right killing its occupants.
Yet another way to be crushed underneath the weight of an 18-wheeler is when the truck is unable to stop safely and evenly and jack knifes. A jackknifing 18-wheeler can actually crush the cars by careening over concrete barriers and flying into oncoming traffic.
