The number of Semi-Tractor Trailers (“Semi-trucks”) that are on this nation’s highways will only increase as the demand for goods and products continues to increase. Even with current regulations in place to help prevent trucking accidents, they still occur at increasing rates.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration the number of large truck crashes resulting in fatalities in 2014 were 3,744, and the number of large truck crashes resulting in bodily injury were 88,000. An additional 346,000 large truck crashes resulted in property damage.
