Semi-Truck Accident Statistics

Semi-trucks have become a vital part of the economy. They are responsible for transporting products and goods across the country. However, it must adhere to strict rules and regulations to help keep everyone on our road system safe. When the industry chooses to cut safety corners to keep up with demand, they can potentially endanger motorists everywhere.

Truck accidents cause some of the most serious injuries of all traffic accidents, in large part because a heavy truck generates more force in a collision. The more force generated in a collision, the more serious a victim’s injuries are likely to be. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation data, almost 4,000 people were killed in tractor-trailer accidents in the U.S. back in 2015.

The number of semi-truck accident fatalities from 2009-2015 rose to a whopping 22 percent. Eleven percent of all traffic fatalities also involved a tractor-trailer back in 2015. Tractor-trailer crashes are often caused by loss of control of the truck, a tire blowout, a disabling or non-disabling vehicle failure, excessive speed, lane drifting, improper truck maneuvering, and driver fatigue.
