Trucking accidents are a terrible situation for those involved. Not only do these accidents usually occur at high speeds, but more often than not, the semi-truck has a severe size and weight advantage on a passenger vehicle. These accidents can often be devastating, even more so to small children who are more at risk than adults in any kind of accident.
Data shows that nearly half of all car accident deaths are children under the age of 15. If your child was the victim of a terrible accident with a semi-truck, they have a much higher risk for injuries that are difficult to detect. In fact, car accidents are one of the major causes of death for children and infants under the age of 12 in the United States.
These accidents can result in years of physical and psychological therapy, which can be incredibly costly if the trucking companies aren’t held accountable for their dangerous practices. Learn more below about the real dangers for young people in truck accidents.
