This is a study of what accidents with trucks costs. The costs were considered with a broad perspective where both society, trucking companies and individual costs were heeded. Data from public and insurance databases have been analysed with statistical tools which yielded results showing that accidents are a significant economic cost to the trucking company. This economic impact has been largely overlooked in the past since it does not affect all trucking companies the same due to the random nature of accidents. However, looking at a large population of accidents it is found that they are common and expensive enough to be a standing cost to the owners of trucks. It is thereby found that accidents cause enough costs that it is possible to use economic reasons for motivating safety measures and that it is possible to calculate the costs of accidents and compare it to other costs that trucks generate, fuel for example. Another result is however that the risks and consequences of accidents exceed economical factors, that both society, individuals and the trucking company will be exposed to risks beyond what could be valued in money.
