Big Rig Accidents

The following are 2002 truck accident statistics:
Every 16 minutes a person in the US was injured or killed in a truck-related accident.

11% of all traffic fatalities involved large trucks

Over 140,000 people were injured in truck-related accidents

More than 450,000 large trucks were involved in crashes

Oversized loads, exhausted drivers, and unsafe driving are a few common threats that have the potential to cause a truck accident. Like other

California drivers, operators of big rigs are required to obey the driving laws. If you have been involved in an accident with a big rig, a skilled big rig injury attorney may be able to help you collect a settlement for your injuries and the damage to your vehicle.

Semi truck, big rig and 18-wheeler accident cases present unique issues not associated with a typical car crash or motor vehicle accident. These differences include:

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations - safe operating requirements for commercial truck drivers, common carriers, vehicles, and vehicle equipment

Hazardous Materials Regulations - safe operating requirements for the safe and secure transportation of hazardous materials, proper packaging, employee training, hazard communication, and operational requirements

Hours-of-Service - safe operating requirements for number of hours on the road
Corporate Liability - negligent hiring, supervision, and truck maintenance claims
