Truck Driver Accidents

Driving a truck is a deadly-serious business. For a time around the 1970s, truckers were treated like cowboys in popular culture. Films like Convoy and Smokey and the Bandit showed rouge truckers speeding around and hiding from the law. Few truckers really act like that, but either through mistake or misbehavior Americans suffer from thousands of truck driver accidents each year and their victims need good legal services to help them recover.

Driving a Truck is Risky, But More Risky for Others on the Road

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, most deaths related to truck driver accidents are passengers in smaller vehicles. According to the Institute, trucks can weigh 20 to 30 times as much as passenger cars and that means that a passenger car is going to be far worse off in any collision. IIHS also warns that many truck driver accidents are caused by fatigue, even though the government has instituted hours-of-service regulations that are supposed to make sure truck drivers get enough rest. Many truckers admit in surveys that they violate the regulations by working longer than they should.

IIHS says that 3,852 people died in large truck crashes in 2015. Of those, 16% were in a truck while 69% were in a smaller vehicle and 15% were bicyclists, pedestrians, or motorcyclists. Truck drivers rarely die when they hit a passenger car. In fact, in the crashes between one car and one truck in 2015, 97% of vehicle occupants killed were in the car. One bit of good news is that crashes are currently far less frequent than they were at their peak in 1979, but the number of truck crashes has been creeping up over the last few years since hitting an all-time low in 2009.

Truck drivers do all sorts of irresponsible things that contribute to these devastating accidents. Data collected by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration pinpoints some of the biggest problems. In 29% of truck driver accidents, the driver was traveling too fast for the conditions. In 23% of crashes, the driver was unfamiliar with the roadway and in 14% of cases the driver failed to adequately see the situation. Drivers also sometimes make horrendous decisions before they even get behind the wheel. Driver fatigue is a factor in 13% of truck crashes and over-the-counter drugs are a factor in 17% of crashes. Happily, truckers tend to avoid causing crashes with illegal drugs and alcohol. Illegal drugs are only a factor in 2% of truck crashes and alcohol is only a factor in 1%.

Dixon Injury Law Can Help Restore Your Life

We know that most truck drivers are conscientious professionals that do the best they can to safeguard the lives of everyone around them that is riding in smaller cars. That said, everyone makes mistakes and when a good truck driver makes a mistake and causes an accident the truck driver (or more likely the driver’s insurance company) needs to pay for the damage they caused. There are also bad apples in the truck driving community, just like any other community, and those drivers that are reckless with other lives on the road need to be held responsible as well.
