Truck accidents are frustratingly common. There are about 10 million auto accidents in the U.S. every year, including everything from semi-truck crashes to parking lot fender benders. Fortunately, comparatively few car accidents are fatal. According to the National Safety Council, just three in 1,000 auto accidents results in loss of life.
On the other hand, any kind of car accident is inconvenient and overwhelming. And just because a crash happens at a low rate of speed or in a parking lot doesn’t mean it can’t cause serious and life-changing injuries.
Statistically, most people will experience a motor vehicle collision once every 17.9 years. If you don’t like those odds, there are several things you can do to stay safe on the road.
Of course, sometimes accidents just happen. If you do experience a car accident, it’s always best to consult with an experienced Dallas car and truck accident lawyer about your options. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other damages, so don’t wait to speak to a lawyer about your case.
