It’s a silly question, but what’s a truck accident? The US Department of Transportation defines a truck accident as a vehicle weighing greater than 10,000 pounds colliding with a passenger car, pedestrian or another truck.

Did you know that roughly half a million truck accidents occur every year in the United States? Seriously! There are estimates that the number of trucks on US roads has surpassed 15 million. Trucking revenue in North America totals into the hundreds of billions of dollars.
