Virginia Truck Accident

Auto collisions are complicated enough, but become even more so when a commercial truck is involved. When a larger vehicle is involved there are various ways to categorize the accident. For example, accidents involving large trucks (including delivery vehicles, box trucks, or tractor trailers) can be classified as head-on collisions, under ride or override accidents, jackknife or rollover crashes. Any and all of these categories of truck accidents can result in serious injury, disability or fatality. As with most auto and truck accidents there are considerations like road conditions, equipment failure, and driver performance that must be taken into account.

Interstates are said to be the safest roadways, but this is where most commercial vehicle and truck accidents occur. Large trucks account for a very small percent of total registered vehicles, yet per unit of travel, these trucks are involved in more fatal crashes than passenger vehicles.

According to the most recent 2010 report from The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety the number of accidents involving semi truck, tractor trailer and commercial vehicles is on the rise.

  • 500,000+ commercial vehicles and large trucks were involved in accidents
  • 100,000+ people sustained serious injuries
  • 5000+ fatalities
