FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. How are truck accidents different from car accidents?
While any auto accident can cause a lot of damage, the risk of severe injury or death is much higher with accidents involving commercial trucks. Most passenger vehicles weigh under 4,000 pounds, whereas tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. This difference means that a truck can easily crush smaller vehicles.
Furthermore, their size makes it more difficult for them to slow down and stop quickly. Thus, when they collide with another vehicle, they are often moving at a far higher speed than a passenger vehicle would have been.
