An “18-wheeler” is a type of commercial truck made up of a tractor and a trailer with a combined total of 5 axles and 18 wheels. These motor vehicles may be called tractor-trailers, big rigs, Mack trucks, or semi-trucks. They weigh up to 80,000 lbs. when fully loaded and take a specialized skill set to operate safely. When involved in an accident, these trucks pose an extreme risk of death or catastrophic injuries to other drivers and their passengers.
