Have You Been Injured in a Collision with a Tractor Trailer?
Truck accidents are commonplace on American roadways. Whenever a tractor-trailer collides with another vehicle, the smaller vehicle invariably fares worse from the impact. Because tractor-trailers are so much larger and heavier than most passenger vehicles, an accident can result in serious injuries and even death. The occupants of the smaller vehicle also face a greater risk of serious injury or death.
Truck Accident Facts
U.S. highways are home to more than 5.5 million tractor trailers. Every 16 minutes, another American is injured or killed in an accident involving a semi or tractor-trailer in the United States. Some other concerning statistics involving tractor-trailer accidents tell us:
- 98% of the fatalities from trucking accidents involve occupants of the smaller vehicle
- 27% of truck drivers in crashes have speeding charges, compared to 19% of car drivers
- Equipment defects contribute to a large number of tractor-trailer or semi accidents

- Drivers’ Logbooks
