Trucking accident injuries occur when large trailers (10,000+ lbs.) collide with other vehicles, pedestrians, or other road objects such as dividers.

Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Of these, approximately 5,000 trucking accidents result in fatalities. In fact, one out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision.

Most of the deaths and injuries involve the passengers of vehicles while the drivers of the tractor-trailers usually escape truck-vehicle collisions with little or no personal injury, one of hte many reasons it is vital to have a truck accident lawyer if you have been in a collision.  Call the firm for a consultation with a truck collision attorney.

Due to the large size of trucks, an accident can greatly endanger the lives of other smaller vehicles unnecessarily when tractor-trailer operators fail to consider proper accident prevention measures.
