Truck Accident Information
Accidents involving trucks comprise a large percentage of the six million motor vehicle accidents that occur on an annual basis in the United States. These accidents are frequently the most serious of any traffic accident, for a variety of reasons. The primary reason is that of the significant size difference between a truck (be it an 18 wheeler or a delivery truck) and a standard passenger vehicle, such as a car or SUV. Most semi trucks outweigh passenger vehicles by a substantial margin, in some cases by a factor of 10. They can also be much larger in dimension, with some being 60 feet longer than even the largest SUV. This can result in an accident in which great damage is done to the smaller vehicle, with severe injuries being inflicted on those inside.
