Truck accidents can occur out of nowhere, and change your life and those you love, forever.

Recent Truck Accident Cases at Shaun Kaufman Law

In the last six weeks, Shaun Kaufman Law, P.C. has been hired by people involved in two different collsions with tractor trailer or large commercial trucks. Is this a coincidence? We think not. There is simply more shipping and delivery by trucks of this size. One of the trucks belonged to a moving company, and another, a beer distributor. There are more people moving now as homes that wouldn’t sell a few years ago are selling — one of the side effects being that there is more disposable income with which to buy items, such as beer.

Accidents Involving Trucks

The way accidents happen with trucks is different because a truck has a wider turning radius, because they are larger, and because seeing around them is more difficult. Drivers of these trucks must take greater care to watch for other vehicles, pedestrians and motorcycles. Any lapse in judgment can have deadly consequences. After all, these trucks weigh multiple times what a passenger car does. 

A semi-truck can weight approximately 80,000 pounds, and sustaining this type of impact can leave motorists and their passengers suffering from catastrophic injuries.

Statistics from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s statistics division, the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), in recent years, one of our nine traffic fatalities resulted from a collision involving a large truck.

Of these fatalities, 74 percent were occupants in another vehicle, 10 percent were non-occupants, and 16 percent were those in the large truck. Of the people injured in crashes involving large trucks, 71 percent were occupants of another vehicle, 3 percent were non-occupants, and 26 percent were within the large truck.

The aftermath of an accident involving a semi-truck can be disastrous, leaving other vehicular survivors of the crash with serious injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries and even fatalities.
