Tractor-trailer accidents are typically among the most devastating on the roadways.  A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds which is 40 tons.  Compare that to a typical motor vehicle and it is like a 200 pound man sitting on a newborn child.  In most tractor-trailer cases there will be at least $750,000 of liability insurance because that is the amount required under federal law.  Hopefully, the family of Mr. Sugg will be treated fairly by the insurance company in this case.
