Find a Truck Accident Attorney

With more than 11 billion tons of freight moved by commercial trucks each year, most of the population is used to sharing the road with semi-trucks. There are approximately 15 million such trucks in the United States and of those, 13% are what would be called:

  • Big rigs
  • Semis
  • 18 wheelers
  • Tractor-trailers.

With numbers like this, it’s no surprise that accidents involving these large trucks happen regularly.

When an accident occurs between a large truck and a passenger vehicle, it’s usually the occupants of the smaller vehicle who incur the most damage. In 2015, close to 70 percent of the fatalities in truck crashes consisted of people riding in passenger vehicles that shared the roads with the big rigs.

A vehicle the size of a big rig, requires additional braking space and room to maneuver. It can take up to 40% more space for one of these vehicles to stop. Because of this, it’s assumed that the drivers of the trucks are to blame when there are accidents.

In these truck accident cases; even small details are of consequence. An abundance of information will be directed toward you and it’s not difficult to get overwhelmed.
