Any type of traffic collision can cause serious bodily injury and even death. However, collisions that involve semi-trucks have a greater potential for inflicting major bodily injury and can be especially fatal to the other motorist and pedestrians due to their large size, mass, and the cargo they transport. On average, 2,036 semi-truck accidents occur every year in the state of Arkansas. In many of these collisions, the driver of the truck will suffer minor or no injuries at all. By contrast, the drivers and passengers of smaller motor vehicles will often suffer severe injuries, face death, and experience massive property damage. Approximately 106 people die every year as a result of these collisions, many of these deaths could be avoided if truck drivers and trucking companies would be more responsible and would follow federal and state safety guidelines.
