18-wheeler statistics

Archives, Trucking Accidents

Florida highways and roads are filled with 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks.  They seem to be everywhere at any given moment.  Did you know that the most deadly type of accident you can be involved in is one with a big-rig, especially those pulling semi-trailers?

According to the University of Michigan’s Center for National Truck statistics, a tractor pulling a semi-trailer accounts for almost 60% of all fatal truck accidents – and there are over 5,000 each year in the United States.  Florida is one of only 3 states in the United States that had the largest amount of truck accidents in a period of 4 years.
