Trucking Accidents


The U.S. trucking industry is a $700 billion industry responsible for moving more than 70 percent of all goods around the nation. According to the most recent data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, 119,000 large trucks (often called semis or big rigs) were involved in injury crashes in 2019. The number of trucking accidents are increasing every year. The amount of commercial freight vehicles on the road – in combination with their size and dangerous industry practices – means that collisions with passenger vehicles can be extremely damaging.
