A: Most on-highway tractors fall into Class 8 which includes all vehicles that weigh  over 33,000 pounds. The other classes are as follows: Class 7 - between 26,001 pounds and 33,000 pounds, Class 6 - 19,501 - 26,000 pounds, Class 3 - 5 include vehicles between 10,001 and 19,500 pounds; and Class 1 & 2 - under 10,000 pounds (which include, for example, pickup trucks, cargo vans and minivans).

If you or someone you love has been involved in a tractor trailer accident or some other large truck accident, you may want to get an estimate of the value of your case to ensure you're being treated fairly by the insurance company or you may want help investigating your semi-trailer accident case to ensure that responsibility for the accident is appropriately placed.  You may want to speak with an experienced northwest Pennsylvania truck accident lawyer.  Most Erie injury lawyers offer free consults so it shouldn't cost you anything just to speak with someone.
