The reckless operation of large trucks and other commercial vehicles poses a grave risk to automobile drivers and their passengers. According to data released by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and compiled by other agencies and sources, around 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Of these, approximately 5,000 trucking accidents result in fatalities. In fact, one out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision.


In 2008, the preliminary national crash facts were as follows:


• 123,918 large trucks and 13,263 buses were involved in non-fatal crashes

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a trucking or other commercial vehicle accident, it is not enough to be represented by any personal injury attorney. The trucking industry is highly regulated. To hold the responsible parties accountable and obtain the just and adequate compensation you deserve, you need a lawyer experienced in truck, tractor-trailer, bus, and other commercial vehicle accidents.


In meritorious cases, victims of trucking and commercial vehicle accidents may be entitled to monetary damages for past and future medical expenses, lost earnings, disfigurement and pain and suffering. Some cases may also merit an award of punitive damages.
