When another vehicle, like a car or a motorcycle, is involved in a collision with a truck, it is likely that they will be the one to sustain an injury. Statistics show that in fatal truck accidents, 98% of the time, the non-truck driver will be the one killed. If one is lucky enough to survive a trucking accident, however, they may be forced to endure lifelong physical damage, including injuries like spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injury and even burn injuries.
In the Unites States, more than 15.5 million trucks are currently in operation, as more than 1.2 million trucking companies employ countless drivers each year. Commercial trucking companies must comply with strict regulations, however, which are designed to protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians from the devastating effects of a truck accident.
Unfortunately, not all drivers adhere to trucking regulations while out on the road. According to the United States Department of Transportation, more than 500,000 truck accidents occur each year. Also, of the 40,000 traffic fatalities that occur annually, 9% of these accidents involve a commercial vehicle—4% being caused by fatigued and tired drivers.
