Large trucks, 18 wheelers, and delivery trucks, are supposed to share the road with smaller cars, pedestrians, bicyclists and other vehicles. These large trucks present serious dangers if not operated properly. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2013, 3,964 people died as a result of accidents involving large trucks and an estimated 95,000 people were injured. Overall in the United States, 342,000 large trucks were involved in police reported traffic crashes during the same year.
Large trucking companies retain accident investigation teams to immediately respond to the scene of a serious accident. These teams may include investigators, and accident reconstruction experts. Imagine having the ability to place a team at the scene of the accident, shortly thereafter, with the ability to photograph the conditions, and interview witnesses before their memories grow dim. Having the ability to get to the scene of an accident first could give the trucking company an advantage in the overall case investigation.
