Facts About Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Truck accidents can lead to incredibly severe injuries and commonly happen almost anywhere. In recent years, studies have shown that the number of truck accidents is increasing each year, leading to more injuries and damages. Between 2009 and 2015, the number of crashes that resulted in injuries increased 62%. Despite regulations in place to prevent or limit potential accidents, commercial drivers are getting into more accidents because there are more vehicles on the road. They can also get in more accidents due to decisions made while driving, an increase in distracted driving, and more. The majority of these accidents do occur in rural areas on highways or expressways and more accidents occur during the day instead of at night.
