​Fatal Truck Accidents Require Aggressive Representation

In 2018, there were 531,000 police-reported truck accidents in the United States that resulted in 4,951 fatalities and an estimated 151,000 injuries according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Large trucks, commonly referred to as “big rigs,” “semi trucks” or “tractor-trailer” trucks, typically weigh around 80,000 pounds and can be up to 75 feet in length. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 104,000 people injured in accidents involving large trucks.

Despite the fact that they represent less than 4 percent of all vehicles on the road, large trucks account for 28% of fatalities in multiple vehicle accidents. Due to the large size and weight differential, most of the deaths and injuries involve the passengers of the smaller vehicles, while the drivers of the tractor-trailers usually escape the collisions with little or no injury.

Navigating The Complicated Legal System Together

Wrongful death claims involving truck accidents are complicated, but you and your family do not have to navigate the complex legal system alone. At the California law firm of Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, we are here to help guide you and your family through the process with both diligence and compassion. When someone you care about dies, it is traumatic and emotional.

When your loss comes as a direct result of a truck driver’s careless or reckless actions on the road, your pain and grief may be mixed with anger. At the law firm of Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, we understand this but also understand that the loss of a loved one may result in a heavy financial burden, especially when the person who has died is the breadwinner of the family.

Because of the weight of big trucks, accidents are often either catastrophic or fatal. Lawyer Scott J. Corwin has obtained recoveries totaling over $125 million, including fatal truck accidents.
