Trucking Crash

There are numerous "big rigs" on the roads today, pushing themselves to cover as many miles as they can during their legal driving hours. These are the kinds of trucks that can often be involved in trucking crashes that result in over 130,000 injuries, and over 5,000 fatalities every year. Many of those trucking crashes are the fault of passenger car drivers who don't realize their sudden lane changes can be dangerous to cumbersome trucks weighing anywhere from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds. But others are caused by poorly trained truck drivers who lose control of their vehicles, speeders, or even those who are drowsy from driving too long. If you have been the victim of a trucking crash, you should contact a truck accident attorney to assess your case and gather the evidence to determine if you are eligible for compensation in your trucking crash.

Fast Facts

  • One third of all fatal trucking crashes involve a driver who has had at least one prior conviction for speeding.
  • Many big rig drivers have unrealistic deadlines which pressure them to drive too fast and too long in order to arrive at their destination on time.
