Why Truck Accident Cases Are Different
Truck accident cases differ in many ways from other accidents, which is why it is essential to hire an attorney with experience in handling such matters.
Here are some reasons why truck accident cases are so unique:
- Trucks are bigger: Due to the size and weight of the average fully loaded truck, these accidents tend to be devastating. Trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds while the average car weighs about 3,000 pounds. Moreover, they are also harder to steer, require more time to achieve a full stop and have massive blind spots.
- More than one party may be liable: Generally, in most car accidents, one of the drivers is usually at fault. In a truck accident case, more than one party is often at fault. The driver, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer, or even the company that loaded the truck may be potentially responsible for the accident, which can make the situation far more complicated than the average accident case.
- Federal laws and trucking regulations: Moreover, truck accidents also tend to involve federal laws and regulations, which many trucking companies frequently try to skirt to increase profits. Proving that these regulations were not followed can add another layer of complications that are specifically unique to these cases.
