Preventing Truck Crashes Benefits Everyone

Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured annually in preventable truck crashes!

In 2010, over 3,600 people were killed and an estimated 800,000-100,000 were injured in 276,000 truck crashes across the United States.  One in five truck drivers admit to having fallen asleep at the wheel in the last 30 days.

We do a lot more than represent victims and their families, we hold trucking companies accountable for negligence and misguided policies that often lead to crashes. Dollar, Burns & Becker has been extremely effective at obtaining safety changes and making sure they are strictly enforced by offending trucking firms.

Our attorneys also work at the national level to influence laws and legislation concerning safety on our roads and highways. We believe almost every truck crash is preventable and it’s our goal to prevent as many future victims as possible.
