Commercial Truck Accidents
Traffic accidents occur on a daily basis, and unfortunately, many of these accidents are fatal. Usually, the results of these accidents are even more devastating and life threatening when a commercial truck is involved. These trucks are also sometimes referred to as big rigs, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers and semi trucks.
A study conducted in a recent ten-year period shows that the number of fatal accidents involving large commercial trucks has risen by ten percent. Four percent of all injuries in traffic accidents and one out of every eight fatal automobile accidents involve large commercial trucks.
