Large trucks are classified as any vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) over 10,000 pounds. In 2009, the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reported that approximately 286,000 crashes involved large trucks.
Unfortunately, these crashes resulted in 93,000 injuries and 3,600 deaths. (www.fmcsa.dot.gov). Many of these accidents are directly related to the negligence of the truck driver, ranging from violation of safety regulations to inspection of truck safety equipment.
