Truck Accidents and Collisions
An accident involving a truck or tractor trailer can change one’s life forever in an instant. Trucks and tractor trailers have become increasingly prevalent on America’s highways, and unfortunately these large and extremely heavy vehicles can cause significant harm when operated carelessly.
About 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. One out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision.
A number of factors can contribute to a trucking accident. Among the most prominent are truck drivers operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, receiving inadequate training, traveling too fast for road conditions, and attempting to meet unrealistic company expectations and work schedules.
