The reason why truck accidents are such a concern is that drivers are there to make deliveries, and most deliveries have tight deadlines. If you work in an office and you are at risk of missing a deadline you work faster. If you drive a truck and are in danger of missing a deadline, you drive faster -- and this all too often leads to an accident. Truck accidents have caused many injuries including back, neck, spinal cord and even brain injuries. And, of course, truck accidents have been responsible for many deaths over the years; deaths of both the drivers and the people in other vehicles that may have been involved in the accident.
