Large trucks are essential to the economy because they transport goods throughout the state as well as the country. When trucks and other vehicles fail to share the road safely, it can lead to collisions between the two. Unfortunately, these commercial truck accidents can be especially dangerous because the size and weight of the trucks are much larger and heavier than regular sized motor vehicles.
When it comes to Illinois, these types of collisions are fairly common. There are a few explanations why they happen so regularly here, but one of the biggest reasons is because Illinois is one of the states with the highest amounts of freight being hauled. This means that there is a higher volume of large trucks on the road because there is so much freight to pick-up, deliver and transport.
