Commercial trucks transport a large percentage of the United States’ freight, putting passengers in smaller vehicles at risk for serious injury or death if involved in an accident. National accident statistics reveal that the occupants of passenger cars and trucks are more likely to lose their lives if they become involved in an accident with a semi-truck. More than 500,000 trucking collisions are reported each year in the United States. These accidents result in thousands of injuries and deaths.
Semi-trucks are involved in a significant number of deadly traffic accidents that take place across the country. Trucking collisions are some of the most dangerous accidents that occur on the roadways of Michigan and across the nation. Even the most experienced and cautious truck driver can make a mistake that results in a catastrophic collision. Despite the fact that the operators of these highway giants are legally required to put safety first, these accidents happen all the time, leaving victims with debilitating and sometimes fatal injuries that leave entire families devastated.
