Q: How do trucking accidents differ from car accidents?
A: Trucking accidents are different from car accidents in a variety ways. People believe that trucks act like cars and they don’t. Trucks don’t have the ability to stop, maneuver, or see like an automobile.
There are three times as many truck accidents in the U.S. as there are automobile accidents in proportion to the amount of trucking traffic to car traffic. They are usually catastrophic. I rarely find a trucking accident that does not cause serious injury.
