Trucking Accident Statistics
According to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation, 3,852 people died of injuries sustained during collisions with large trucks. Of these fatalities, 69% were occupants in other vehicles involved in the crash, and 15% were pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicyclists.
Truck accidents and other commercial vehicle accidents often result in a range of catastrophic personal injuries. Multiple fractures, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and brain injuries are all common.
If a trucking accident was the result of negligent actions on the part of the driver, the shipping company in charge of maintaining the vehicle, or any other company representative, then these individuals and their employers could be liable for the victim’s injuries. Some shipping and logistics providers as well as their drivers, supervisors and potentially even contractors could have violated federal or state law, leading to the conditions that caused the accident.
Commercial Vehicle Accident Injury and Wrongful Death
Commercial vehicles often weigh 20 to 30 times more than the average passenger car, truck or SUV. When these vehicles get into collisions, severe injuries can occur. In 2015, 83,000 of all large truck crashes (20%) resulted in severe injuries requiring hospitalization.
The recovery process for truck accident injury victims is long and painful, leading to significant medical and rehabilitation costs as well as lost wages and psychological suffering.
