Tractor trailers dwarf any other vehicles on the road, and for that reason a tractor trailer crash can be especially deadly for a passenger vehicle that collides with a truck. Even with that being the case, driving a truck is still pretty dangerous for the truck driver.

Truckers are Working on the Road

Each tractor trailer will drive about 45,000 miles in a given year, and that is usually not for fun. Truck drivers are typically commercial operators that spend a lot of time on the roads. Driving a tractor trailer takes a good bit of skill, because it can be 30 times heavier than a normal passenger car and it needs about 40% more space to stop. Tractor trailers also need about 55 feet to turn around and can be susceptible to “jack knife” crashes (where the trailer whips around the side of the cab) and rollover accidents.

According to federal statistics, 756 truck drivers lost their lives in work-related incidents in one recent year and about 65,000 suffered injuries or illnesses that resulted in lost work time. Truckers are seven times more likely to die at work than the average worker, and three times more likely to suffer a nonfatal injury or illness. Most, but not all, of these injuries come from crashes. About 70% of fatalities involved roadway incidents of some sort. Truckers also often fall off their truck while cleaning or loading them, and that can cause serious injuries. Truckers also have an elevated risk of non-driving issues like suicides and robberies.

Who Pays for a Tractor Trailer Crash?

When a truck driver is injured on the road, he or she is probably going to be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. That can be good, because workers compensation is supposed to pay an injured employee on a “no fault” basis for lost wages and medical treatment, and if necessary permanent disability or rehabilitation. That means regardless of who is at fault, the driver should be compensated. The downside is that workers’ compensation prevents a worker for suing his employer for negligence. So, if a truck driver was sent out onto the road with faulty brakes, that will usually be treated no differently than if the driver made a faulty decision on his own.

One possible exception to workers’ compensation limits is that an injured truck driver may be able to sue third parties that are responsible. In the case of a truck driver, this could mean if another driver caused the accident the truck driver could potentially collect compensation from that driver and thereby exceed the rather-limited workers’ compensation awards.

When it comes to people hurt by tractor trailers in a crash, the truck driver’s insurance company will usually pay for those damages if the trucker is at fault. Very few truck drivers hit the road without the legally-mandated insurance, so someone struck by a truck can usually rely on having a solvent insurance company to deal with. The challenge will usually be in getting the truck driver’s insurance company to admit they are responsible for the accident, and that is where an experienced lawyer comes in.
