18-wheelers are huge, heavy, and hard-to-control vehicles whether the driver
is maneuvering the truck within a lane, making a turn, or trying to stop.
Commercial truck drivers are often paid by the mile or by the stop, which

If you are in an accident with an 18-wheeler, make sure to do the following:
- Call the police right away and get a police report. The police officer
will do an independent investigation and provide a record of what happened
before stories change.
- Take pictures of any broken glass or damage to your vehicle before the
vehicles involved are moved from the roadway.
- Get the other driver’s information including a picture of his or
her license, insurance card and employer’s information.
- Gather any information from witnesses. A witness’s statement can
be the difference between winning and losing your case.
