Tractor-Trailer Accidents in Nice
Tractor-trailer accidents are a devastating aggregate of the vehicle’s excessive size and speed as opposed to a much smaller car, motorcycle, or even bus. A tractor-trailer carrying a full load might weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. That is approximately 20 times as much as a typical passenger vehicle, which generally weighs in at about 4,000 pounds.
