One-Sixth of Workplace Deaths are Truck Drivers

Overdrive Magazine reports that data from the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals that about one out of every six Americans who die on the job is a truck driver, with most of the deaths occurring due to crashes. The article says that statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that the “recent-year truck-occupant fatality numbers have generally been on a downward trend,” indicating that the “increases of fatalities the DOL’s post notes, by that logic, must be coming from somewhere other than crashes.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
