Rise in Trucking Accident Fatalities
CNBC recently aired a report showing that the number of fatal truck crashes has gone up 18% between 2009 and 2012. Federal trucking regulators are fighting to ensure that the trucks and truck drivers on the roadways are fit and safe, so why are these numbers going up?
Some argue that it has to do with the increasing amount of freight on the roadways due to the growth of the economy. Others say it’s because, despite federal regulations, millions of trucks and drivers on the roadways are not fit for duty. Others say that too many non-commercial drivers are cutting trucks off, tailgating them, or lingering alongside them.
Regardless of why the number of fatal truck accidents has risen, it is important to act quickly if you’ve been injured in a trucking accident. You need an attorney to help you gather evidence and prove that your crash was the result of someone else’s negligence.

Who Is at Fault for a Truck Accident?
Truck drivers are generally contracted through companies to freight cargo to and from specified destinations. There are numerous laws and federal organizations, such as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, that regulate drivers and their rigs, but finding who is at fault for an accident may still be difficult. When you work with our firm, we investigate every aspect of the accident and apply a dedicated approach to your case to ensure that your rights are protected and that you obtain the compensation that you deserve. Depending on the situation of the collision, one or more of the following factors may come into play when determining who is at fault:
- The driver
- The manufacturer of the truck
- The freight company
- Road conditions
- A product manufacturer, such as a supplier of tires, brakes or hydraulics
- The shipper or the loader of the cargo
