Eighteen wheelers are a vital part of interstate commerce in our country. The big rigs carry products across state lines, and keep our stores’ shelves stocked with the things we need on a daily basis. But, when a trucker is involved in an accident, the injuries are usually catastrophic. The sheer weight of a truck is such that when it collides with a car, the results are severe. Drivers and passengers in cars can suffer broken bones, internal organ damage, spinal and brain cord injuries, or even death. Staying safe around big rigs requires drivers to pay extra special attention when near a truck, and to keep a safe distance. But, drivers can only do so much; it also takes diligence on the part of the trucker in order to safely share the road.

In 2011, 3,757 traffic crash victims were killed in a crash with a large truck and nearly 88,000 were injured. The fatality rate per 100 million vehicle miles traveled is .136 for large trucks and busses and the injury rate is 3.8. The estimated costs of commercial motor vehicle crashes totaled $87 billion; with $39 billion from fatal crashes, $32 billion from injury crashes and $16 billion from property damage only crashes. Not all of these accidents and fatalities are commercial carriers fault, because there are other drivers on the road that are distracted or under the influence for instance, but there can be extra precautions taken to decrease the amount of crashes and damage.
