In just a few seconds, a truck accident can have a devastating impact on your life and leave you wondering who you can turn to for help
When a car collides with a truck – especially a big rig, 18-wheeler, or tanker – there is often serious bodily and property damage due to the truck’s considerable size and weight. These accidents can be particularly deadly for occupants in the car as they may be crushed under the truck, which can weigh over 10,000 pounds.
There are several factors that can lead to a truck accident including distractions that divert drivers’ attention, speeding and other reckless driving, poor road and weather conditions, tired drivers, mechanical malfunctions, and improperly secured cargo.
There are over approximately 500,000 truck accidents per year in the United States with roughly 5,000 of these resulting in at least one death. Though not as common as fatalities from car accidents, 12.5% of people killed on the road die as a consequence of a truck collision.
