I was in a horrible accident involving a semi. When I finally came home, I was broken and battered; I needed help. I reached out to Keller and Keller when they answered the phone. It felt like I had somebody who had my back, and they were there for me. You don't pay anything unless they win money for you. Keller and Keller make you feel like family. They never quit, and they didn't quit on me. Call the name you know: Call Keller and Keller.

Statistics About Big Truck Accidents

One out of every 8 fatal accidents on our highways involves a semi-truck. This statistic alone confirms that there is a problem and the trucking companies should be held accountable for the negligence of their drivers. (Indiana's numbers in 2009 were particularly grim, documenting 3,600 large truck accidents with approximately 100 resulting in fatalities and 1,000+ in serious injury.)

  • In 2013 (the most recent year data is available), there were over 327,000 accidents involving commercial trucks.
  • Over 10% (3,906) of these accidents were fatal.
  • 63% of fatal accidents involved two or more vehicles.
  • 25% of these deadly crashes occurred on interstate highways.
  • 66% of all fatal accidents took place during the daytime.

Semi-truck drivers are under constant pressure to meet time deadlines, and in a business where time is money, a driver's lack of adequate rest may lead to sleep deprivation. A drowsy trucker who doesn't take mandated scheduled breaks can be the fatal cause of any serious semi-truck accident.
