Unfortunately, truck drivers are the most likely drivers on the road to be involved in an accident where an experienced trucking accident lawyer can make the difference between getting the short end of the stick and a full cup of justice. Moreover, and sadly, it is the family of a truck driver that is the most likely to seek such an attorney to file a wrongful death lawsuit against those responsible for their loved one’s death in an accident involving a semi-truck.
That is because, statistically, driving a truck for a living remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, fatal transportation incidents accounted for about 2 out of every 5 fatal work injuries in 2013.
Of the 1,740 transportation-related fatal injuries in 2013, nearly 3 out of every 5 (991 cases) were roadway incidents involving motorized land vehicles.
