When collisions happen between trucks and passenger cars, smaller vehicles are usually the ones that end up with the worst damage. Given the sheer size and weight of 18-wheelers and small-to-large commercial trucks, truck accidents often result in catastrophic or fatal injuries to the drivers and occupants of passenger vehicles. Many truck accidents are caused by negligence on the part of truck drivers and their companies.
