A trucking accident is more likely to result in death or injury than and accident between passenger vehicles. Around 500,000 trucking accidents happen each year in the United States. In 2018, ninety-six percent of passengers killed in accidents involving passenger vehicles and large trucks were occupants of the passenger vehicles. With the average large truck or “big rig” weighing around 30,000 lbs and passenger vehicles weighing around 4,000 lbs, it’s easy to see why your car is no match for a semi-truck.
One of the most important things to do after a trucking accident is to contact an experienced personal injury attorney. An experienced trucking accident attorney can review the details of the accident to determine if you have strong evidence to build a case. The evidence you present will ultimately dictate the outcome of your case.
