Nearly 70% of all commercial freight in the United States is delivered by truck. This has made the trucking industry one of the largest and most competitive businesses in America. Tractor-trailers are a common sight on highways throughout the nation.
Unfortunately, due to their massive size and weight, truck accidents can lead to serious personal injury and even wrongful death. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that someone is seriously injured or killed in a tractor-trailer accident every 16 minutes.
Causes of Truck Accidents
Because of industry competition, trucking companies often impose unrealistic schedules on their drivers, asking them to meet impossible delivery deadlines. This can lead to fatigued driving, which is one of the most common causes of truck accidents.
