Tractor trailer and commercial truck accidents can be some of the most deadly wrecks that occur on our roadways. Because these vehicles are so large and so heavy they are sometimes difficult to control and, if they are traveling at high speeds, combined to make it a very dangerous threat on our Oregon roadways. Many of these accidents happen on highways such as I-95, I-84, and I-91, that are quite congested and add to the dangerous nature of truck accidents.
