Did you know that every 16 minutes a person in the United States is injured or killed in a large truck accident? About one in ten highway deaths occur in an accident involving commercial trucks.

There are over 400,000 car accidents involving commercial trucks each year in the U.S. In 2016, 3,986 people died in large truck accidents. 17% of these deaths were truck drivers or passengers, 66 % were occupants of cars and other passenger vehicles. The most common cause of accidents involving large trucks is driver fatigue. Accidents involving large trucks are more likely to result in catastrophic injury (alarming frequency of brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis) or death than other auto vehicle collisions because these commercial trucks are 20 - 30 times heavier than traditional passenger automobiles.

Most injuries or deaths in accidents involving large trucks are suffered by passenger vehicle occupants. Victims of large truck accidents often require expensive medical treatment which may continue for several years and can result in huge medical bills.

Who will pay for the damages?
If the truck company is indeed responsible for the accident you have suffered, their insurance will then pay for all damages. Large trucking companies have accident investigators that often sent to the collision scene before the police arrive. While the families of the crash victims are dealing with hospitals or making funeral arrangements, the trucking company is investigating the accident and setting up their defense.

The opinion of Florida personal injury attorney Sean M. Cleary is that many times, the drivers of large commercial trucks are not well trained and often violate the speed limit and the hour regulations.

"You have to know that each car accident that involves a truck is different and we can help you understand all aspects involved in filing a personal injury claim. Here, at The Law Offices of Sean M. Cleary, we represent victims of truck vs. car accidents on a regular basis, and we have a great record of success regarding these cases" informs Sean M. Cleary.
