What is the Difference Between a Car Accident and a Truck Accident?

Representing Clients In Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Macon, Savannah, Gainesville & Throughout Georgia


There are several differences between car and truck accidents. One of the largest is severity. Trucks are much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles. In an accident involving both, the occupants of the smaller vehicle are at heightened risk for serious, life threatening injury. This often makes the damages sought in trucking accident claims much larger than those in other motor vehicle accidents.

In addition to size and weight differences resulting in more severe injuries, truck accidents may involve multiple parties, including the driver, the trucking company, and even government entities. Each of these parties will be prepared to fight against an injury claim. You must be similarly prepared to fight for your rights or you may never see the compensation you deserve.
