How Common are Box Truck Accidents?
Large trucks, such as box trucks, are a common sight on roads and highways across the country. While these vehicles play an important role in the economy, they can also be very dangerous. In fact, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there were 885 large trucks and buses involved in fatal crashes in 2018.
People who rent box trucks tend not to be experienced truck drivers. In addition, box trucks often lack certain safety features, such as seatbelts for all passengers. As a result, occupants of the vehicle may be ejected from the truck during an accident, leading to devastating injuries or even death.
Common Types of Box Truck Accidents
There are many different types of accidents that can involve box trucks. Some of the most common include:
These accidents are usually caused by truck drivers who are speeding, following too close, distracted, impaired, or fatigued. The sheer size and weight of a refrigerated truck can make a rear-end accident with a smaller passenger vehicle catastrophic.
This type of accident, also referred to as a “side-impact” or “broadside” accident, most commonly happens at an intersection, often when a refrigerated truck runs a red light, disregards a stop sign, or turns left in front of oncoming traffic without enough time to complete the turn, resulting in a collision with the side of an oncoming vehicle at roughly a 90-degree angle. Like rear-end collisions, T-Bone accidents are often caused by driver-related factors such as speeding, distraction, drug or alcohol impairment and fatigue.
These accidents are similar to T-bone accidents, except that they involve collisions with vehicles traveling next a refrigerated truck in the same direction. Sideswipe accidents are extremely dangerous because the size and weight of a truck can send a small passenger vehicle sideways into other lanes of traffic. Common causes include distracted, impaired, or fatigued driving, and/or failure to use turn signals or check blind spots.

“The Absolute Best”
I hired Alex Durst to represent me in a truck accident case that was very serious and traumatic. The truck company fought the case hard and tried to blame ME for the accident. Durst was not going to let that happen.
In the end, I got a GREAT settlement. It’s a huge relief...

The client ultimately recovered successfully.
“Aggressive and tough. Proven winner.”
Alex proved to be a very tough lawyer - he didn’t take the easy, quick money, but rather took the time and went through the necessary steps to really set the case up right.
