NHTSA Data Show Heavy Truck Fatalities Continue to Rise, Despite Overall Decline in Road Fatalities

Automotive World reports the potential “for distraction and fatigue behind the wheel is high, and truck makers, technology suppliers and federal regulators are acutely aware of the consequences.” Figures “from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show that in 2018, the number of fatal crashes in the US involving a heavy-duty truck rose for the fourth consecutive year to 4,678.” Preliminary data “from NHTSA released in May 2020 suggested that despite an overall decline in all road fatalities during 2019, fatal collisions involving heavy trucks had risen by 1%.”

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...)
