ST. LOUIS, MO, December 08, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Do you know the most dangerous day of the week for tractor-trailer accidents in Missouri? The answer may surprise you.
The attorneys at Craig, Kelley & Faultless, LLC are pleased to announce the creation of Fatal Tuesdays, an online resource to help Missouri drivers be better informed about the common issues involved in semi-truck accidents.
The online resource tackles the big questions about commercial truck accidents:
• Why commercial truck accidents occur
• When truck accidents are most likely to occur
• Where large truck wrecks happen most commonly
While automobile crashes increase on weekends, truck accidents are higher on weekdays because more trucks are on the highways Monday through Friday.
An analysis of 10 years of federal traffic data found that more than 23,000 large truck accidents occurred on Tuesdays in Missouri, the highest total of any day of the week. Tuesdays also had the highest number of fatal truck accidents during the time period.
Meanwhile, Fridays had the second-highest number of total truck accidents and fatal accidents.
Errors by commercial truck drivers are a leading cause of truck accidents. By the end of the week, commercial truck drivers may have covered thousands of miles and be more prone to driving errors due to high levels of fatigue.
Commercial truck accidents tend to cause more serious injuries because of the size and weight of 18-wheelers. Resolving truck accident claims can be more complicated because of the number of potentially liable parties and the higher amounts of insurance at issue. If you have been injured in a truck accident, you need a skilled truck accident attorney to stand up for you.

Founding partners David Craig and Scott Faultless are among a select group of lawyers who have attained board certification from the National Board of Trial Advocacy in commercial truck accident litigation.
