18 Wheeler Accidents

 

A collision with an 18 Wheeler can be life-threatening or physically devastating. It is important to hire a law firm with experience in dealing with 18 wheelers or other commercial vehicles and their insurance companies.

Over 500,000 trucking accidents happen yearly in the U.S., causing approximately 5,000 deaths per year. In Texas alone, the number of 18 wheeler or trucking fatalities in 2017 was 649 (according to NHTSA) and 2,660 total crashes involved with a commercial vehicle in Bexar county(according to TXDOT).  Many accidents are due to the 18 wheeler truck driver’s blind spot, distraction, negligence, driver fatigue, inadequate training, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or improper truck maintenance.

Texas is listed as one of the top ten states with the highest average of fatal large truck crashes for 2014-2016 according to FARS data. 18 wheelers or semi-trucks weigh 20 to 30 times more than a passenger vehicle and take 20 to 40 percent farther to stop completely.
