LAKE CHARLES LA TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

LAKE CHARLES LA TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Each year truck crashes kill over 5,000 people and injure almost 150,000 more on our nation’s roads and highways. Nearly one in four passenger vehicle deaths in multiple-vehicle collisions involve a large truck. In 1998, 98% of the fatalities in two-vehicle crashes involving passenger vehicles and large trucks were occupants of the passenger vehicles. Large trucks are involved in multiple-vehicle fatal crashes at twice the rate of passenger vehicles. Furthermore, almost 800 large truck occupants, almost all of them drivers, die each year in these crashes. In recent years, almost one of every four fatalities among passenger vehicle occupants have been the result of multi-vehicle collisions involving a large truck.
