Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania
Trucks are a key component of Pennsylvania’s economy. They serve a vital role with the transportation of goods across nearly every stretch of highway and connect it to the rest of the nation. Unfortunately, they also have a large role in fatalities and injuries. Since 2013, PennDOT reports that there have been 33,183 accidents involving trucks. Frustratingly, most of truck accidents are preventable and are the direct result of negligence on the road. Loose regulations and willful recklessness mean that Hanover residents are placed at an unnecessary risk of harm each day. In fact, the FMCSA reports that 13% of truck crashes are caused by fatigue.
Other truck accident facts:
- Commercial vehicles represent 5 percent of vehicles but cause 11 percent of traffic deaths
- About 700 of the nation’s 5,000 traffic fatalities are truck drivers
- 1 out of 4 crashes occur after 17 or more hours without a break
When any of the above forms of negligence happen, innocent people pay with their health, finances, and future. Truck accidents cause serious personal injuries that result in a loss of a person’s quality of life, places them in debt, and inhibits their ability to make a living—hardships that no one deserves to experience because of the careless decisions of another person.
