Truck Accidents – Big rigs cause big damage
The sheer size and weight of a truck make it a lethal weapon if involved in an accident. Victims of trucking accidents often have costly medical bills and property damage, and some victims may not walk away from a collision with a truck.
Know the Facts
- Almost 98% of semi-truck accidents result in at least one fatality.
- About 130,000 people are injured each year in truck collisions
- For every 100 million miles driven on U.S. roadways, there are 2.3 deaths and 60.5 injuries caused by big rigs (aka: 18 wheelers, semi-trucks, Mack trucks)
The Responsible Party
Truck accidents are more complex because there are multiple candidates that may be responsible for a victim’s loss, including:
- The truck driver
- The owner of the truck or trailer (many truck drivers rent the truck or trailer from a third party)
- The person or company that leased the truck or trailer
- The manufacturer of the vehicle or parts of the vehicle that may have contributed to the accident
- Shipper or loader of the cargo (if the accident was a result of improper loading)
Damages Caused by Truck Accidents
Big rigs cause big damage, including:
- Physical injuries—ranging from bruises and broken bones to permanent disabilities and fatalities
- Emotional injuries—emotional injuries may take longer to heal than the physical
- Financial harm—medical bills, property damage, and an inability to work can be overwhelming
