Each year 400,000 to 500,000 large trucks are involved in collisions with automobiles. According to the National Traffic Safety Administration, one out of eight traffic fatalities results from a collision involving a large truck. Often, it is critical that victims of these tragedies take immediate steps to preserve critical evidence and retain independent experts to investigate the circumstances of the crash and to determine whether the drivers and trucking companies have complied with the many trucking regulations designed to protect other drivers.
