Large commercial trucks, also known as 18-wheelers, semis, and tractor-trailers, account for more than their share of serious injuries and traffic deaths on America’s highways. According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), large trucks are responsible for 12 percent of all traffic fatalities, even though only 3 percent of all registered vehicles are trucks and trucks account for only 7 percent of vehicle miles traveled. In Missouri alone, trucks were involved in 102 fatal crashes in 2004. In addition, in 2004 trucks were involved in 150 fatal crashes. Large trucks are also more likely to be involved in fatal multiple-vehicle crashes.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an accident involving a truck, please contact our attorneys at Baker and Associates for legal assistance as soon as possible. Our lawyers will investigate if the trucking company, the driver, or the trailer owner is responsible for causing the accident and, if so, seek compensation for past and future medical expenses, past and future wages, pain and suffering, disability, and other damages.
