United States Truck Accidents

Nearly 500,000 large trucks (tractor-trailers, semis, dump trucks, big rigs, fire engines, etc.) are involved in traffic accidents in the United States every year. Approximately 5,000 of these truck crashes are fatal (wrongful death).

  • One of eight traffic accident deaths is caused by a collision with a large truck;
  • Most of the deaths and personal injuries involve passengers of the motor vehicles, autos, motorcycles, and cars struck by tractor trailers;
  • The tractor trailer truck drivers typically escaped without serious injury;
  • Claims and lawsuits are often filed by lawyers and law firms as a result of traffic crashes that cause serious personal injury or death.

Commercial Drivers License (CDL)

The Federal government requires tractor-trailer, semi, 18 wheeler, and other large truck operators to have a commercial drivers license (CDL). The drivers are also required to undergo drug and alcohol testing before they are allowed to drive the big trucks.
