Large Truck Accidents
A Large Truck Accident occurs daily all over the country, even in Lee County, Alabama or the surround Auburn/Opelika area. There are currently in excess of 2 million tractor trailers traveling the roads of the United States. Nearly 40,000 people die in traffic accidents this year with about 10 % of those being involved in a large truck accident. It’s a fact that large trucks are difficult to control and stop due to their design and the amount of weight that they are carrying.
They also have large blind spots and make wide turns which increases their potential for accidents. Combine that with drivers that have often times been on the road for too many hours, you have a recipe for disaster. Occupants of a motor vehicle are likely to suffer catastrophic personal injuries when involved in an accident with a large truck. For more statistics, check out information available at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
