Truck drivers have a very difficult job: they must maneuver extremely large loads in the midst of traffic. These truck drivers also work long hours and go well into the night when traveling from state to state. However, these large trucks and semi trucks are actually one of the leading causes of traffic-related deaths in the United States. A typical eighteen-wheeler weighs 20 to 30 times more than a passenger vehicle and has much more power. Due to their sheer size, the truck is virtually guaranteed to crush a smaller vehicle in an accident. When a truck hits a car, the victims within the car often suffer extreme injuries, and in many cases, can be killed.
According to the California Office of Traffic and Safety, in 2014 alone, there were over 7,831 injuries involving truck collisions; 310 resulted in death. While trucks are held to various state and federal laws and regulations to minimize the possibility of this risk, some truck drivers and trucking companies ignore these laws to maximize profits and make deadlines. All drivers on a public road have to drive with the same standard of care to prevent a debilitating accident. Breaching that duty for even a few seconds can change your life forever.
