Each year, thousands of people are killed and injured in big rig accidents
on America's streets and highways. Shockingly, a person is killed
or sustains injuries due to a truck accident every 16 minutes. Although
the state of California imposes a slower speed limit for trucks of 55
mph on the freeway, many big rig operators disregard this law. Some causes
of big rig and truck accidents are:
- Unsafe operation of the vehicle
- Large amounts of cargo

What are the different types of truck accidents?
People who operate big rigs must deliver their cargo in a timely manner
to keep up with deadlines. This is no excuse for the reckless and hazardous
driving practices performed by truck drivers that cause serious accidents.
There are many types of truck accidents which occur across the United States
for various reasons, which include:
- Jackknife accidents
- Runaway trailers
- Underride collisions
- Overloaded truck accidents
- DUI truck accidents
- Hit-and-run truck accidents
- Dangerous roadway accidents
- Fatigued driving crashes
A car, van, or SUV is no match for a large truck weighing over 10,000 pounds.
The injuries that may occur as the result of a big rig accident include
bone fractures, paralysis, head injuries, internal organ injuries, and
spinal cord injuries. These devastating injuries may have long-lasting
effects on the truck accident victim, requiring hospitalization, surgeries,
medications, and other expensive medical treatments.
Do not wait to get the help you need.
