Accidents involving trucks can lead to severe damages and injuries due to the sheer size and weight of them. In fact, 98% of all semi accidents result in at least one fatality according to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis. Truck accidents are usually caused by human error, which can include fatigued driving, inexperience, speeding and other forms of impairment. There is more room for error in truck driving since the vehicle is much larger and requires more expertise than a typical vehicle.
