Truck accidents can lead to severe injuries

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the agency tasked with regulating large commercial trucks, a fully loaded semi can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. A vehicle of this size and weight can inflict considerable damage on a passenger vehicle.

  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding

During the latest reporting year in the US, the FMCSA reports that there were approximately 148,000 people injured and more than 4,700 people killed in crashes with large trucks.

These incidents happen in a variety of ways, and the following are some of the common causes:

  • Truck driver negligence. If a driver is operating while impaired or distracted, or in violation of FMCSA regulations, they are a risk to others on the roadway.
  • Truck company negligence. Truck companies are responsible for regularly inspecting and maintaining each vehicle they own and for ensuring each driver is qualified for the job.
  • Defective vehicles or parts. If a truck or truck part is defective and a crash occurs, various companies could be held liable.
