When a person is involved in an accident with a large truck, the consequences can be tragic for the victim and his or her family. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 8.2% of all traffic fatalities in 2013 involved large trucks. That totals to nearly 300,000 large truck accidents. If you have been involved in a crash caused by the negligence of a truck driver, trucking company, or truck manufacturer, you may be entitled to compensation.
