Truck accidents in the U.S. kill more than 4,700 people each year and injure more than 115,000 others.1 What may be just as shocking as these statistics are the facts that:
- When truck accidents occur, the occupants of smaller passenger vehicles are about three times more likely than the people in trucks to be seriously injured.
- Some type of negligence is a contributing factor in more than 80 percent of all large truck accidents.1

- Determine when negligence may have been involved
- Hold the negligent party (or parties) accountable
