In general, accidents that involve a large truck cause more serious harm to the public than any other traffic accident, due to their enormous size and weight. In the state of Washington, over a thousand of truck accidents occur every year. In many of these cases, these catastrophes could have been prevented if the trucking companies and the operators of these vehicles followed both the Federal and State guidelines regarding how tractor trailers and other similar vehicles should be operated on the public roads and highways. In 2007, 1,525 injuries resulted in from tractor trailers accidents in Washington and 100 fatalities. This is simply inexcusable!
