Injured In a Truck Accidents - 18 Wheeler Crash
In a collision between a truck and a car, there is a lot of physics at work, but you don’t need to be a scientist to know the outcome. Although speed can play a major factor in any accident, an accident between two objects of such different sizes even at low speeds can be catastrophic for the car. If you have been involved in an accident with a truck, you do not even need to read the rest of this to know about the potential damages and injuries that can occur.
Semi collisions will typically cause drivers of passenger cars to suffer increased injuries, permanent disabilities, or even death in the event of an accident. Our truck crash legal team is well-versed in the laws pertaining to truck safety, liability, and insurance negotiations, making it possible for you to focus on healing rather than on legal details. We keep you informed throughout the entire process, helping you to understand your rights and maximize your compensation. If you have been injured in a truck crash or if you have lost a loved one in a commercial truck accident, contact the Law Office of Domingo Garcia today.
Truck Accident Statistics
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a branch of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), is charged with collecting and analyzing data involving truck accidents in all 50 states. According to a recent report, 4,951 trucks weighing more than 10,000 pounds were involved in fatal crashes in 2018, which is an increase over the previous year. Singles (truck tractors pulling a single semi-trailer) accounted for 59 percent of the large trucks involved in fatal crashes in 2017.
In 2018 there were an estimated 151,000 people injured in crashes involving large trucks—an increase of 2 percent from an estimated 148,000 in 2017. Seventy-one percent of people killed in large truck crashes in 2018 were occupants of other vehicles.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 98 percent of all semi-truck accidents result in one or more fatalities, and tractor-trailer accidents are responsible for more than $20 billion in damages each year.
When it comes to commercial trucks as a larger classification, the average truck accident results in about $59,200 in damage, and 90 percent of these accidents are caused or made worse by human error.
Common Types of Truck Accidents
The types of accidents that can occur with trucks are quite varied from the accidents that automobiles can cause. Following are some of the common types of truck accidents:
- Jackknife – When a tractor-trailer stops suddenly, the trailer can swings out to the side, impacting with other vehicles.
- Load drop – Cargo on trucks that is inadequately secured may come loose and spill onto the roadway or other vehicles.
- Rollover – Truck drivers sometimes lose control of their vehicles, and they tip onto one side or roll from one side to another.
- Blind spots – Trucks have large blind spots that block a driver’s view of the road and other vehicles.

How long will my truck accident case take?
We cannot begin processing your claim until after we have received all of the doctor’s reports stating exactly what your medical condition is and your long-term prognosis. In other words, until you have reached “maximum medical improvements.” If we try to settle your case before your medical condition is stabilized, you may lose money that you might be entitled to for a condition that did not show up until after your case was settled.
It is important to know that your case will not be settled until the damages have been determined and all investigations to determine who is liable have been completed. It generally takes several months to gather the necessary information. If a trial becomes necessary, it can take several years to complete a case. One of the most difficult requests we make of you is to have patience. We will work as hard and fast as possible to settle your case quickly.
