GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT ACCIDENTS INVOLVING TRACTOR / TRUCK TRAILERS
Every day on our roads and highways, semi-truck accidents claim lives and cause irreparable injuries. All too often, semi-truck accidents are the result of carelessness or recklessness on the part of the truck driver, such as speeding, distractions, driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Trucking companies routinely overload their vehicles and fail to maintain them properly. Over recent years, both the government and trucking companies have pulled out all the stops to try and cut back on truck accidents. The government has enforced different laws to ensure safer trucking and minimize the risk of accidents. The trucking companies have increased safety procedures as well as training and awareness for their trucking staff. Today, in the United States alone, there are over two million more registered trucks on the road than there was over a decade ago, increasing the risk of an accident. In 2015, commercial vehicles registered in the United States totaled 5,304,567.
