Because more materials are moved by trucks than by air and ship combined, the trucking industry is one of the largest in the United States. Truck accidents occur because of fatigue, highway design faults, and driver error. Trucks are larger and heavier than other cars on the road, which explains why 77 percent of those injured and 86 percent of those killed in large truck collisions are the drivers or passengers of the smaller vehicles. While the trucker often escapes with minor injuries, the Asheville victims and their families are left to face a life-changing tragedy.

This tragedy may require the services of an Asheville trucking accident attorney to ensure that justice is done.
