Truck and Semi-Truck Accidents

Personal injuries that occur when an automobile is struck by a truck, semi-truck, bus or any type of large work vehicle are almost always extremely serious because of the weight and size of the vehicle.  

As compared to passenger vehicles, in the 2015 Washington State Annual Collision Summary, the fatal collisions and serious injury collisions for collisions involving these types of larger vehicles occur at a greater rate.  Fatal accidents involving heavy trucks occur at double the rate of passenger vehicles and serious injuries occur at approximately a 40% higher rate.
