Approximately 5,000 big rig accidents occur each year that result in a traffic fatality. Most of these accidents occur in Florida, Texas and California. Semi truck accidents account for around 13% of all fatalities, a higher proportion than the number of trucks on the road. Big Rigs are 50% more likely to be involved in a fatal accident than all vehicles and 80% more likely to be involved in multi-vehicle accidents.
Studies have shown that truck driver fatigue or distraction can play a large part in Big Rig accidents. Although Federal law limits the amount of hours a truck driver can drive each day, experts point to surveys that show the driving limits are often violated to increase pay. With the variety of mobile devices and in-cab entertainment options on the rise as well, drivers face more distraction than ever.
Tired or distracted drivers can run off the road or into the lanes of other drivers with devastating results. Tire blowouts or equipment failure can also cause drivers to lose control of their heavy loads.
Dealing with the pain, loss of function, medical bills and lost wages associated with a big rig accident can be devastating on you and your family.
