Car accidents with big rigs can be devastating. The chances of terrible injuries and death from a collision with an 80,000 truck are certainly higher than a wreck between two passenger vehicles.
Sadly, things are getting much more dangerous on our highways.
The decade between 2009 and 2018 saw an INCREASE of 31% more deaths by 2018 due to crashes involving tractor trailers.
Motorcyclists, pedestrians, and bicyclists were also included in that list, and they have even less chance of survival than someone in a passenger vehicle.
As more businesses employ fewer people with less experience, and pay them less, all in order to maximize profits, the public pays the real price.
Despite these dangers and the epidemic of injuries and death, the trucking companies, instead of working to improve safety, are working with insurance companies to punish the people they hurt. Evidence is destroyed, data disappears, and work begins to ruin your claim from the moment it happens.
