Truck accidents are incredibly destructive for victims and their families. When these large vehicles are stocked at maximum capacity, they can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. Fully-stocked semis cause unimaginable damage even when travelling at low speeds. If someone is hit by a semi truck, fatal or catastrophic injuries are very likely.
