How do Truck Accidents Differ from Car Accidents?

Truck accidents differ from car accidents in several ways. The most obvious being the size and weight of commercial trucks. A fully loaded commercial truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds.

Additionally, many trucks carry hazardous materials that can ignite, causing fires or other dangerous conditions during an accident. This makes truck accidents and truck accident injuries severe and often deadly.

Truck accidents occur for several reasons, including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Truck defects
  • Failure to perform proper maintenance
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Over cargo weight
  • Speeding
  • Not checking blind spots
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Failure to follow traffic signals

Unlike car accidents, multiple parties are potentially responsible for a truck accident, including:

  • The truck driver
  • Another driver on the road
  • The trucking company that employed the driver
  • Someone who maintained or repaired the truck
  • The manufacturer of the truck’s parts

Truck Accident Injuries

Due to their severity, truck accidents may cause lifelong injuries, preventing victims from returning to their everyday activities and jobs. Truck accident injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Head injuries and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Internal organ damage
  • Death
