PLAQUEMINE LA: TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

 PLAQUEMINE LA TRUCKING ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Most people are aware that many truck accidents take place every year in the United States, which causes injury to thousands of people, in addition to causing many deaths. But do you know the actual numbers? Here are some truck accident statistics, as released by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and compiled by many agencies and sources.

A trucking accident occurs when large trailers (10,000+ lbs.) collide with other vehicles or pedestrians. Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Of these, approximately 5,000 trucking accidents result in fatalities. In fact, one out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision.

Because the web of players in the trucking industry can be complicated and getting information from the right sources may require some industry know-how, it is very important to get advice or representation from an experienced trucking accident lawyer. Please contact the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess. If our lawyers do not collect money damages for you, you don’t owe an attorney fee. We don’t get paid unless we successfully recover compensation for you and your family.
