OCTOBER 2015 – On average, there can be upwards of 500,000 trucking accidents each year. Large commercial vehicles, such as 18-wheelers are involved in 1 out of every 8 traffic fatalities. The trucking industry has been accused of sacrificing safety over profits. Speeding, driver fatigue, unsafe driving in bad weather conditions, distracted truck drivers, and driving excessive consecutive hours have all contributed to the increase in trucking accidents nationwide. These trucking accidents can be caused by negligence of the truck driver or the trucking company’s negligence. Third party negligence can also be a factor, including poor third party maintenance, defective computer systems, and defective tires or brakes.
Securing a settlement in a trucking accident can help with the victims’ medical bills, lost wages, and other costs associated with the pain and suffering from the injuries caused by the accident. Instead of eagerly accepting a low settlement from the trucking company, ensure that your rights are protected by consulting with an attorney.
