Trucking Accident Information

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 110,000 people were injured in large truck accidents in 2005 and over 5,200 were killed. This number includes other drivers, passengers, cyclist and pedestrians and accounts for one out of eight traffic fatalities.

Trucking accidents can occur due to use of prescription and over-the-counter drugs, speeding, fatigue, inattention, or distractions. The news is full of stories in which an 18-wheeler driver was doing something besides watching the road, for example talking on the phone or even playing on a computer. The NHTSA itself has recognized that “we need to spend more time addressing driver behavior.”

FedEx Truck Accident Lawsuit
