Legal Implications 

Accidents involving large trucks often have complex legal ramifications. In 2020, over 5,000 fatalities involved large trucks in the U.S., indicating the severity of such collisions (NHTSA, 2022).

The FMCSA notes that most fatal truck crashes occur on rural roads with high-speed limits, similar to where this recent incident occurred. Common causes include driver error and mechanical issues, as highlighted by an AAA study.

Moreover, IIHS studies show that side underride guards could reduce fatalities by up to 70%. The NTSB recommends collision avoidance systems for new trucks to prevent such accidents. Legal professionals can navigate these complexities to pursue compensation and justice.
