We often see large trucks pulled over by police on highways due to the statistical high level of infractions, or worse, rolled onto their side causing major traffic delays.

- In the United States, a total of 4786 people died in large truck crashes in 2018.
- The majority of deaths are occupants of other vehicles.
- 14 Percent (786) of large truck occupants in fatal crashes were not wearing seatbelts. (45 percent) were killed in the crash.
- “Speeding of any kind” was the most frequent driver related factor for drivers of both vehicle types;
- “Distraction/Inattention” was the second most common for large truck drivers
- “Impairment” (Fatigue, Alcohol, Illness, etc) was the second most common for passenger vehicle drivers.
In Brocton our Truck Accident Lawyers are familiar with the Massachusetts Code of Regulations governing truck operations on our local roads. These truck operators are held to a higher standard due to the potential dangers posed by trucks. A simple lane change or bringing the truck to an abrupt stop can be a much greater challenge and often results in an accident. Applicable CDL licenses require additional training and safety measures when operating a truck. These standards were developed due to a higher rate of truck related accidents and injuries. Route 24 passing through Brockton is a common trucking route and is one of the more common locations for accidents due to it’s narrow lanes.
