Unfortunately, crashes involving a car or SUV with a tractor-trailer do not usually end well for those occupying the car or SUV. Due to their massive size, tractor-trailers and other large trucks can be particularly dangerous when they collide with a car or SUV. 18-wheeler accidents are not just like regular car crashes. The process of pursuing a claim following a tractor-trailer accident can be very exhausting. Commercial insurance companies will go to great lengths to make the process difficult for injury victims or their families (in the event the victim passed away in the accident). Trucking accidents are very complex for several reasons.
