The sad truth is that more than 500,000 trucking accidents occur annually in the United States. Over 31,000 of those accidents cause injuries, while close to 5,000 lead to fatalities.
Trucking accidents are often the result of negligence or carelessness, including:
- Drug or alcohol use by truck driver

- Driver fatigue
- Inattention to other traffic
- Non-compliance with federal trucking regulations for rest breaks
