These types of accidents, small vehicles that collide with large trucks, almost always result in serious injuries or even deaths. Identifying their causes is crucial as this can help prevent future incidents. That said, motorists injured due to negligent or reckless behavior should consult legal experts so that they can determine if filing for damages/compensation would be an appropriate response post-crash.
