If you are involved in an accident involving a large truck, call us immediately! Documentation and preservation of evidence are crucial and needs to happen as soon after the accident as possible. Accidents involving large trucks and heavy commercial vehicles are among the most serious and deadly in the United States. An automobile does not stand a chance against an eighteen-wheel tractor trailer weighing up to 80,000 pounds (twenty-five to thirty times the weight of most passenger cars). The most recent statistics reveal that approximately 5,000 people are killed each year in truck accidents and another 105,000 people are injured. Large trucks are nearly twice as likely as automobiles to be involved in a fatal accident. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that up to 40 percent of accidents involving large trucks may be the result of driver fatigue, and up to 30 percent of all large trucks on the highway exceeds allowable weight limits.
