truck accidents

Semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles are very common sights on the roads. A collision with a commercial truck can be catastrophic for the average driver in a smaller vehicle, and can even result in death. 

It has been estimated that freight travel is more than 700 million tons every year. Indiana and Illinois have been known as some of top states with high freight traffic. This demonstrates that truck accidents are likely to occur on a regular basis. In 2018 alone, more than 10,000 accidents with commercial vehicles took place. That the rate has since doubled in the following year. Research conducted by Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has the following as factors of truck accidents: over-speeding, use of the wrong lane, unsafe backing, drunkenness, lack of attention while driving, lack of proper sleep, unfriendly weather conditions, and mechanical defects of the truck.

When these commercial drivers display an attitude of negligence and the result is an accident, they are culpable for any injuries and damages that follow.
