Large trucks are involved in a high percentage of traffic crashes and deaths.  According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, in 2015 alone- over 53,000 large trucks were involved in crashes that caused auto accident injuries with over 4,000 fatal injuries.  Sadly, the trend lines indicate a growing problem. The same data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety from 2009 data indicated only 3,200 deaths related to large truck accidents. The problem is likely to continue to increase as industry insiders confirm that more trucks continue to ride U.S. highways and roads on a daily basis.

A large truck is any truck whose vehicle weight is over 10,000 pounds—usually referred to as semis or tractor-trailers. Because of their extreme size, crashes involving large trucks are more likely to result in serious injury and death than those involving only passenger cars.  Approximately 10% of people that experience an auto accident injury from a large truck crash are killed.  Large trucks are also more likely to be involved in multiple-vehicle crashes than are passenger cars.

Both federal and state regulations govern the safety of the trucks’ equipment and the drivers’ hours. Trucking companies are required to keep records of such information.  Poor equipment and driver fatigue can be causes of multiple-vehicle crashes. Truckers also exhibit basic negligence which leads to accidents, such as speeding, improper lane changes, and failure to see the cars around them when making turns.

It is important to have the help of a semi truck accident lawyer whenever you are hurt in any one of these accidents.  The legal professionals at a truck accident law firm can help explain how the facts of your particular case might play out in negotiations with the trucking company or insurer.  In addition, you can learn whether or not the filing of a lawsuit is necessary to ensure that you receive the compensation for your auto accident injury that you deserve.
