Truck Accidents On The Rise
The transportation industry logs over 400 billion miles per year! Fatal truck accidents are on the rise; happening nearly 11 times every single day in this country on average, and killing nearly 4,000 people each year, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
On top of that, more than 100,000 people are injured every year in truck crashes. That's as bad as if a commuter jet crashed every single week of the year, killing everyone on board. And the numbers have been getting worse: Truck-crash fatalities have increased since 2009. If you or a loved one have been injured or killed as a result of a truck accident, you need an experienced truck accident attorney.
When a trucking accident takes place, the trucking company and its lawyers immediately investigate and secure documentation from the truck’s on-board computer system. The trucking industry can afford to hire expensive lawyers to contact and influence witnesses and prepare to deprive you of your legal entitlements. Truck accident cases are expensive and complicated. You need an experienced truck accident attorney and advocate.
