What Are Semi-trucks?
The semi-truck is a combination of a tractor and up to several trailers. Usually, the tractor hauls just one unit. In order to tie the semitrailers to the tractor, a fifth wheel hitch is used. The tractor has several axles, usually two or three. However, in order to haul heavy loads, this number may grow to four or five axles.

Attorney Darryl Isaacs sat down to address questions for those who have been involved in a crash involving semi-trucks or other large commercial vehicles. Join us in this radio episode of “Ask The Hammer,” the podcast exploring the legal matters that matter most. Play the episode directly below.
Semi-Truck Crash Injuries: The Key Factor of Truck Weight
The cargo part of the vehicle has eight wheels while the tractor portion has ten. The trailer has two axles. Long-haul vehicles are divided into triples (three trailers) with a maximum weight of 129,000 pounds. Doubles have two trailers with a maximum weight of up to 147,000 pounds.
The weight of a cargo truck is a key factor in the injuries that result. Most passenger vehicles weigh under 5,000 pounds. This puts them at a great disadvantage when a crash occurs.
