Commercial truck accidents are some of the most dangerous that can occur. According to national statistics, there are 5,000 fatalities and 106,000 injuries from truck crashes every year in the United States. Even individuals who do not originally think they were hurt can suffer from long-term complications such as difficulty utilizing an injured limb or chronic pain and fatigue.
