Types Of Commercial Vehicles

Trucks and commercial vehicles pose unique dangers on the road due to their size, weight, and engineering. The results of a commercial vehicle accident can be especially catastrophic since due to their size and velocity an accident involving a truck often involves multiple vehicles.
