How Truck Accidents Differ from Car Accidents
On average, semi-trucks weigh 15 times more than cars. Their massive size and tonnage translates to greater danger on the road. Additionally, trucks often require far greater stopping distance than cars. Truck drivers are also more likely to suffer fatigue after spending hours on the road. When a collision does occur, the force of the impact can be immense.
As a result of all these factors, accidents involving trucks are far more likely to result in serious injuries and fatalities. Such a sudden and unexpected injury or wrongful death can leave family members at a loss on how to move forward, both emotionally and financially.
Exploring All Routes To Recovery
Truck accident cases are often more complicated than those involving passenger cars. Although the truck driver may be at fault, other parties may also be liable, including the driver’s employer and the truck manufacturer.
Many possible sources of negligence may have contributed to the accident such as:
Inattentive or distracted driving
Improper truck maintenance
Lack of adequate training
Failure to observe trucking regulations
Loss of load
Driving impaired by drugs
The rules of the road are different for trucks. Truck drivers must observe detailed state and federal regulations that govern the maximum number of hours they can drive, mandatory breaks, logbooks, and record-keeping, and other aspects of truck driving. Failure to adhere to these requirements can give rise to liability.
