Tractor-Trailers

When people think about commercial vehicles, tractor-trailers are usually the first things that come to their minds, because almost everyone has seen tractor-trailers. These large commercial trucks are usually about 53 feet long, minus the cab—add the cab and they are approximately 70 to 80 feet long. These are usually the largest vehicles on the road, and weight 80,000 pounds—which is 20 to 30 times more than an average passenger car.

As commercial vehicle accident lawyers in Atlanta, we are familiar with the damage and injuries that these trucks can cause. To learn more about tractor-trailers, visit our Atlanta truck accident attorney page.

These trucks are used to transport hazardous cargo, including gasoline, diesel, ethanol, petroleum-based products, and chemicals. While some tanker trucks carry non-flammables, most carry explosive cargo that can set on fire. In addition to hauling dangerous cargo, tankers are apt to rollover because of their size and shape.

Garbage and dump trucks can be seen each day in Gainseville, Atlanta, Columbus, Savannah, Macon, Albany, and just about every other city and small town in Georgia—these trucks are often on the same residential roads as regular cars, bicycles, and pedestrians. But, don’t get lulled into thinking these trucks are safe. These trucks are designed to collect and transport trash, so they are built with large, heavy frames. They may also have hydraulic equipment used to compact trash. The way garbage and dump truck are designed can result in large blind spots, which can greatly affect a driver’s ability to see around the truck.
