The commercial trucking industry would like you to believe that trucking accidents are rare and you and your family are safe sharing the highways and local streets with these large commercial vehicles. However, trucking accidents are responsible for 5,000 deaths and an average of 168,000 accidents each year.
Although the trucking industry is highly regulated, when trucking companies fail to enforce industry rules and hold drivers responsible for observing regulations, they put the safety of everyone on the roadway at risk.
Truck accidents can be caused by a variety of circumstances, from failing to properly maintain the vehicle to driving too long without rest. Whatever the cause of the accident, the consequences are often severe. Because of the mass of these vehicles, the forces involved in a truck accident are greater than most car accidents, resulting in life-altering injuries for the occupants of the passenger vehicles involved.
