Rear-End Accidents and Tractor-Trailers

Tractor-trailers are big vehicles that cannot stop easily and have many blind spots. To get into an accident with one of these behemoths is always a bad thing because, usually, a small vehicle will end up being totaled due to the truck's large size and weight. When these accidents occur, it's important to remember that, as long as everyone is alive, things can always improve, and that if the accident is not your fault, you have allies on your side.
