Appleton truck accident attorney driver fatigue

Tractor-trailer trucks are a familiar sight on the roads in Wisconsin and throughout the United States. Because many people are used to driving around large trucks, they may not realize the dangers that these vehicles present. Unfortunately, the drivers and passengers in other vehicles are likely to be seriously injured in a collision with a semi-trailer truck. In fact, out of the 4,102 people who were killed in truck accidents in the United States in 2017, only 683 were the drivers or occupants of trucks. Occupants of passenger vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians made up 82% of the fatalities in semi-truck accidents, demonstrating the risks that these massive vehicles present.
