Tractor Trailer Crashes
Tractor trailer crashes can have devastating consequences. With the extraordinary forces involved in large truck accidents, drivers and passengers of all ages can experience severe traumatic injuries. Senior citizens are often particularly susceptible to suffering life-changing and life-threatening injuries when tractor trailers malfunction and truck drivers make careless mistakes. Far too often, injuries from tractor trailer accidents force senior citizens into assisted living facilities and other forms of long-term rehabilitation centers. When a fatality occurs, family members across the country are left to grieve the loss of loved ones while struggling to find answers about what went wrong.

The statistics on tractor trailer accidents are sobering. National data shows that fatal truck accidents have been on the rise in recent years, with car, van and SUV occupants making up the substantial majority of crash victims. More than one in ten fatal roadway crashes involves a commercial truck, and 97 percent of the victims in these accidents are occupants of passenger vehicles. Among large truck crashes, tractor trailers lead the way – accounting for 75 percent of all commercial truck accident fatalities.
