In general, accidents that involve large trucks cause more serious and fatal injuries and pose more of a threat to the public than traffic accidents that involve smaller motor vehicles. Due to their enormous size and weight, trucks have the potential to cause much more damage. In the state of Arizona, there are approximately 3,057 truck accidents that occur every year. In many of these cases, these catastrophes could have been prevented if the trucking companies or the operators of these massive vehicles would have followed either the Federal or State guidelines regarding how tractor-trailers and other similar vehicles should be operated on public roads and highways. In 2007, 1,565 injuries and 100 fatalities were the result of tractor-trailer accidents in Arizona. This is simply inexcusable!
