Key Differences Between Truck Accidents and Car Accidents

An accident is an accident, no matter which way you slice it - or is it? Unfortunately, there are key differences between a semi truck accident and a regular auto accident. Here are some of the key factors to take into account before you get into your next auto accident.

They're handled differently in court

Combined with all the possible causes of the accident, trucking cases are not always black and white. Even though most regular auto incidents are due to human accidents or errors - like failing to stop at a stop sign - a big rig accident relies on more than one party. The trucker may be at fault, but the corporation for which they drive may also be held liable. Nearly 23% of accidents with a semi truck are caused because the semi-truck driver was traveling too quickly for the road conditions at the time.

They cause more damage

It's unlikely a run in with a semi truck will result in a simple fender-bender. Because of the sheer size and weight of large trucks, the damage incurred is usually far greater than the average traffic collision. This makes it more than just a financial case regarding the cost of damage. You'll have to take into account other factors, including bodily injury. Which leads to the next point...

Serious injury is more common

Truck accident injuries are usually more damaging than other car accident injuries. Common injuries include whiplash, back pain, broken bones throughout the body, and traumatic brain injuries should the car driver survive. This means that recovery time also needs to be compensated for if a case is taken to trial, along with all the medical expenses associated with the accident. These kinds of auto accidents are life-changing and you deserve the best attorney around to handle compensation for your truck accident injuries.

A specialized attorney is needed

For a client who has sustained truck accident injuries, a regular attorney is simply not acquainted with the type of legal protection they need. An experienced attorney is a necessity when you're looking for someone to handle a case as fragile as this one. Read reviews online, call around, and guarantee they have field experience before hiring a trucking accident lawyer.

Being in a semi truck accident can be a life-changing experience. For the best truck accident attorney, call the Parks Law Firm for more information.
