The Chicago Tribune recently reported the tragic story of a young man killed when his motorcycle was run over by a truck with a trailer attached. As the two vehicles attempted to merge onto the Eisenhower Expressway, the truck apparently pushed the motorcycle up against the wall and eventually ran over the driver, allegedly causing his death.
Dealing with as many auto accident cases as we do, trucking cases often have the most dire consequences.
While this can be due to any number of factors related to the conduct of the driver, oftentimes, it is simply a matter of physics — the larger the vehicle, the more time it will need in stopping or maneuvering out of the way to avoid an accident. Unfortunately, when hit by a large truck, the mass of the vehicle almost always causes a greater impact that leads to more severe damages. These sorts of accidents too often end in tragedy, and unfortunately are seen far too frequently.
