Every day, companies across the United States, and across the world, rely on tractor trailers to get their products where they need to go. However, these large, heavy trucks have the potential to cause very serious injuries when they are involved in accidents on the roadways. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, 385,000 large trucks were involved in traffic accidents in 2006. As a result of these crashes, 106,000 people were injured and 4,995 were killed. Of those injured in accidents involving large trucks, only 22% were occupants of the truck; 76% were occupants of another vehicle and 2% were nonoccupants (i.e. pedestrians). Of those killed, only 16% were truck occupants, 75% occupants of another vehicle, and 8% nonoccupants.
Someone involved in an accident with a tractor trailer is twice as likely to be killed than if the crash had been between passenger vehicles. Because of the large size and heavy weight of the vehicle involved, tractor trailer accidents are usually very serious – often including life-threatening injuries and death – and there are numerous legal issues surrounding them.
