Posted on

The massive commercial trucks with which we share our roads are involved in some of the most dangerous accidents out there. If a truck driver’s negligence leaves you injured in an accident, it’s time to consult with an experienced Wisconsin truck accident attorney.

Truck Accidents

According to the National Safety Council’s Injury Facts, the following three trends apply to commercial truck accidents:

  • Fatal commercial truck accidents are on the rise, and the number of such accidents in 2019 was a full 2 percent higher than the number in 2018.
  • The rate of involvement per 100 million miles traveled for commercial trucks in fatal accidents rose 5 percent in 2019 (over 2018).
  • In 2019, commercial trucks made up 10 percent of all the vehicles involved in fatal accidents but accounted for only 4 percent of all registered vehicles and for only 7 percent of all miles traveled.

In other words, commercial truck accidents are on the rise and are exceptionally dangerous.
