Semi Truck Crash Statistics
In February 2011, the Traffic Safety Facts, published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reported the following 2010 truck accident statistics:
- 12% increase in number of people injured in large, commercial truck accidents.
- 6% increase in number of fatalities in semi truck accidents.
- 13% increase in alcohol-related tractor trailer crashes.
Because semi trucks are so much larger and heavier than other vehicles on the road, the majority of those killed in commercial truck crashes are the drivers and/or passengers of the smaller vehicles. The truck accident victims and/or their families are left to cope with their losses, including personal injury, disability, wrongful death and potentially staggering financial losses.
If you or a family member has been hit by a semi truck, you need:
- A personal injury law firm with sufficient resources to investigate and pursue a costly truck accident lawsuit.
- A commercial truck lawyer experienced in handling large, complex cases.
- A truck accident lawyer that knows the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) trucking guidelines.
- A semi truck accident attorney that will not be intimidated by large insurance companies and trucking companies.
