We know first hand the devastation that is caused by trucking collisions. According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, thousands of motorists are killed each year by large trucks – those weighing more than 10,000 pounds. 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers and semis fall into this category. Trucking accidents have an increased chance of causing an injury because in most cases, a truck cannot remain upright during an accident. Additionally, truck drivers have limited visibility and maneuverability.
These factors greatly contribute to truck accidents. Whether the driver is distracted, falls asleep at the wheel or just isn't paying attention, accidents caused by these massive trucks can kill or catastrophically injure motorists. Truck drivers and the companies they work for have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. Unsafe driving, oversized cargo loads and various other careless factors put the public and the truck operators in danger.
