The trucking industry is dangerous at the best of times. Truck drivers are tasked with long, uninterrupted hours, often at night on very little sleep. It’s no wonder then, that almost 90% of commercial truck accidents happen or are made worse because of human error. This human error could be the fault of the truck driver, another automobile, passengers of that vehicle, bikers, or even pedestrians. The harrowing fact remains, commercial truck accidents can be horrific.
Being involved in roughly half a million crashes each year, semi trucks pose a real and present danger to road safety. If you are a victim of one of these accidents, you should consider contacting a truck accident attorney. If you were riding a bike at the time, consider also contacting a motorcycle accident attorney.
