Semi Truck Accident Statistics
There are approximately 295,000 truck accidents each year involving large trucks, according to the most recent federal government truck accident statistics. Only about 3% of those semi truck accidents involve a rollover.
Tractor trailer truck accidents can be some of the most serious, resulting not just in injuries, but deaths. This is because of the large size of tractor trailers, and the weight of the truck along with any cargo.
If you or a family member have been injured or killed as a result of a semi truck accident, or tractor trailer accident, an experienced truck accident lawyer can be of great assistance.
