Trucks and trailers are the workhorses of our country’s transportation system. They deliver goods to stores, warehouses, and factories across America every day. Unfortunately, this also means there is an increased risk for truck accidents on highway roads that don’t have a median barrier separating traffic lanes one from another; or in low-speed areas such as parking lots where trucks make deliveries during non-congested hours.
While most trucking accidents occur at high speeds on highways, even semi collisions with lower rates of velocity still cause catastrophic injuries like traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord damage, broken bones, etc because these trucks weigh so much more than passenger cars – often 10 times heavier!
