The dangers of truck accidents and how to avoid them


Due to their sheer size, truck accidents often lead to far more severe damages and injuries than traditional passenger vehicle accidents. Trucks can weigh up to 25 times more than a passenger car, and often carry hazardous or flammable material, making a bad situation even worse at times.

Three main factors found to contribute to truck accidents


Commercial trucks are less likely to be involved in collisions than smaller vehicles like passenger cars, vans and pickup trucks. When truck accidents do occur, though, the results are often catastrophic. These large and heavy vehicles can easily destroy smaller vehicles in a crash, and drivers and passengers in these vehicles can be injured or killed while truck drivers often walk away unscathed or with only minor injuries.
