Alarming Truck Accident Statistics

Trucking companies are in business to make money, which means getting shipments delivered on time. In an effort to increase profit, these same companies can place an emphasis on speed over safety, which can cause motorists to become unnecessarily vulnerable.

For example, recent statistics show that:

  • 12% of all traffic fatalities involve a commercial truck
  • 4% of traffic accident injuries involve a commercial truck
  • 77% of those who are injured are in the passenger vehicle
  • 86% of those who are killed are in the passenger vehicle

These statistics paint a fairly grim picture for victims of collisions with commercial trucks. Matters may be made all the more difficult when faced with deceptive or outright illegal practices by trucking companies and the insurance companies that handle their claims. With a truck accident lawyer from our firm on your side, you can rest assured that we will fight tirelessly to protect your legal rights.

The Trouble with the Trucking Industry

There can be many causes for truck accidents. Sometimes, trucking companies hire drivers without first conducting a drug test or checking driving and police records. Other times, the drivers are hired without the trucking company providing them with adequate training on proper driving technique or safety concerns.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

Unfortunately, the trucking companies will most always side with their truck drivers and blame the victims of these accidents even when it's clear that the cause was truck driver negligence. However, an experienced truck accident lawyer from our firm can filter through the facts and make sure the responsibility falls where it should.
