Over the past two decades, the number of truck accidents has increased by 20%.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), in 2002, 4,897 individuals died and 130,000 people were injured in crashes that involved a large truck. Trucking accidents typically cause much greater harm than ordinary traffic accidents due to the large size and heavy weight of most trucks of up to 10,000 pounds.
