A commercial truck is larger and heavier than most other vehicles on the road, making virtually any collision a serious event. This is particularly true for pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicycle riders who are struck by large trucks. A fully-loaded semi truck may weigh up to 80,000 pounds or possibly more. When another vehicle or a human being sustains the full force of impact, the resulting injuries are oftencatastrophic. A driver or passenger of another vehicle may suffer from whiplash, back or neck injuries, head trauma and more. A pedestrian or cyclist may experience multiple broken bones, internal organ damage, brain injuries and even crush injuries or dismemberment.
