The Truth about Truck Accidents in the United States
In the United States, trucking accidents are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths annually. In fact, every 16 minutes, a person will die while being involved in a truck accident. Most victims of truck accident fatalities are drivers of smaller motor vehicles, such as cars, SUVs and motorcycles. Simply put, these smaller vehicles, which weigh up to a few thousand pounds cannot withstand the impact of a large truck, weighing tons.
When people are involved in collisions with 18 wheelers, big rigs and commercial trucks, they stand little chance of escaping with minor injuries. It is well known that most victims of trucking accidents will incur debilitating physical injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and burn injuries. Within seconds of a truck accident, victims lives can be destroyed. This is a tragic thought considering the majority of truck accidents are caused by both truck driver negligence and trucking company negligence. All too often, truck companies and truck drivers will engage in reckless behaviors that are not only dangerous, but also illegal according to state and federal laws. When this happens, innocent lives are placed in jeopardy and truck drivers and companies must be held responsible for their thoughtless actions.
