What’s the problem?
A big rig truck is defined as any truck that has a gross vehicle weight of 10,000 pounds or more. These trucks are incredibly dangerous to smaller vehicles because, when fully loaded, they are roughly 40 times heavier than most passenger cars. Three percent of all traffic accidents in the United States involve big rigs. 18 wheelers are responsible for 5,000 fatalities and 130,000 injuries on the road each year.
Trucking Accident Injuries
Victims of trucking accidents can suffer a variety of mild to serious injuries including:
- Broken bones

Trucking accidents can be caused by any number of factors, and determining fault can be one of the most critical aspects of a big rig accident claim. Hiring a qualified trucking accident lawyer can ensure that you have the best chance at receiving the compensation you deserve.
