Truck Accidents Kill by Brad Pistotnik on Amazon

The statistics are alarming. While large trucks make up approximately 4 percent of the registered vehicles on the nation’s roadways, they account for almost 10 percent of accidents involving fatalities—and the numbers of truck crashes and related injuries and fatalities increase every year. Last year, trucking revenues totaled $610 billion, which is estimated to double by 2015. With payment incentives that focus on deadlines and moving cargo rapidly for pay by the mile or by weight, the trucking industry has created a killing field on US roads. So what can we do to stop the carnage? Truck accident lawyer Brad Pistotnik is an expert on motor-carrier regulations, practices, and litigation. His book Truck Accidents Kill is the most authoritative text to date on the issues surrounding large-truck accidents. From the latest available statistics and the causes of driver errors to manufacturing and maintenance problems, job pressures, and questions of liability, he provides the tools for anyone who is concerned about road safety. The book is valuable to attorneys who are fighting to ensure that the trucking and insurance industries take responsibility in keeping the public safe.
