Typically, people think of commercial vehicles as semi trucks attached to a trailer with 18 wheels, being operated by a long-haul truck driver involved in an injury accident. American Trucking Association’s (ATA) defines a tractor-trailer as a combination of both a tractor and semi trailer together. Sometimes the tractor-trailer is referred to as a trucking rig. The tractor is as a truck that pulls a semi-trailer by means of a fifth-wheel (hitch) mounted over the rear axle of the tractor. A semi-trailer is defined as a trailer that only has an axle at the rear wheels and at the front of the trailer a fifth wheel (hitch) attachable to a tractor. Tractor-trailers are the most common form of commercial trucks hauling a wide variety of cargo.
