Tractor trailer accidents are among the worst on the roadways.  A fully loaded tractor trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds which is often 40 times heavier than a car.  Under these circumstances, the forces exerted by the tractor-trailer are overwhelming and it is a miracle that anyone survived this accident.  In cases such as this, a number of issues should be investigated such as whether the driver of the tractor trailer had been on the road too long prior to the accident and whether this contributed to a lack of attention.
