Understanding How the Differences Between Trucks and Cars Impact Collisions
When comparing car and truck accidents, there are several key differences to note. Car accidents tend to be less severe since cars are built using lighter-weight materials. Their lighter weight results in minimal damage, whereas higher speed limits on roads with trucks can cause devastating impacts due to their large size and weight. Big trucks are very different from cars when it comes to safe maneuverability on roads. For example, trucks require additional space during braking due to their higher mass and longer stopping distances. They also cannot maneuver through small spaces as easily as smaller vehicles. Knowing how these differences affect your driving options when sharing roads with such vehicles is key for avoiding dangerous scenarios involving trucks.
Common Truck Accident Injuries
While truck accident injuries can range in severity, they carry much greater potential for destruction and injury upon impact. Because of the size, weight, and force differences between work and cargo trucks and passenger vehicles, accidents typically end in severe injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries (SCI)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
If you or a loved one have been hurt in a truck accident, you can trust the attorneys at Metzger Wickersham to fight for the compensation you deserve. We can’t emphasize enough how important it is to secure legal representation if you’ve been injured in a truck accident.
