Rear End Collisions
Rear-end auto accidents can result in serious injuries, particularly for the vehicle being struck, and when the at-fault vehicle is a large commercial truck, the resulting injuries and damage can be especially severe. If you or a loved one has been rear-ended in an accident involving a large truck, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
One of the largest studies on large truck accidents was conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in the mid- to late-1990s and found that about 400,000 large truck accidents occurred each year, and about 18% of these were rear-end accidents. There are multiple reasons why these accidents are particularly dangerous for drivers/passengers in normal vehicles: some large trucks are up to 40 times heavier than regular vehicles; the stopping-distance between a large truck and the vehicle ahead must be much longer due to velocity; and about 18% of the accidents in the study involved three or more vehicles after a large truck rear-ended the first vehicle.
An estimated 23,000 injuries and 700 deaths per year have resulted from rear-end truck accidents, and legal liability may fall on the truck driver, trucking company, the truck’s manufacturer, or a combination of these depending on the unique circumstances of the case.
