Trucking Accidents in Iowa
Massive large rigs move the majority of goods and freight throughout the country, and their tremendous weight poses a danger to people in passenger cars on the roadway. Smaller automobile occupants are more likely than bigger car occupants to suffer life-threatening injuries in a collision, according to national accident statistics, and these occurrences are known to be deadly. Over 500,000 transportation accidents occur each year, resulting in thousands of injuries and fatalities.
Driving behind large semi-trucks and tractor-trailers is dangerous, and this is why so many Iowa drivers are concerned anytime they pass a truck or other big vehicle on the road. Every year, thousands of individuals are killed or injured in commercial vehicle accidents, with the majority of those killed or injured riding in passenger cars. Although all drivers must adhere to the same set of laws, running a huge rig necessitates a greater degree of skill and expertise. Truck drivers who lack the skills required to safely handle such massive vehicles risk creating catastrophic Iowa trucking accidents, which all too frequently end in the death or injury of innocent people.
