Trucking Accidents

The Truck Accident Attorneys at the Law Offices of John Day Protect Injury Victims

trucking accidentsWithout a doubt, trucks are vitally important to the U.S. economy. The industry adage is: "if you bought it, a truck brought it." But all too often, these big trucks cause serious wrecks as they criss-cross the multiple interstates of Tennessee. The average passenger car weighs roughly 5,000 lbs. and a tractor-trailer weighs up to 80,000 lbs, so it easy to see which vehicle is going to bear the brunt of the impact. Serious injuries and death can easily result from trucking accidents. In Tennessee alone, there were 1,661 large trucks involved in fatal crashes between 1994 and 2005. 1,785 people lost their lives in those Tennessee accidents -- an average of 148 fatalities per year. Tragically, the number of fatal accidents in Tennessee has been on the rise. From 1995 to 2005, there was a 21/% increase.
