Houston 18 Wheeler Accident Lawyer | Difference Between Truck and Car Accidents

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


There’s several main differences. First, trucks are larger and weigh more than an average car. Typically, truck crashes are much more severe. They can cause more significant injuries because of the size and the weight of the truck.

Secondly, the trucking companies are regulated heavily by state and federal governments and have to follow a lot of rules regarding how they operate their companies. When you have a truck case there’s a lot more of an analysis of whether they have complied with those rules and regulations.

Thirdly, I believe truck companies have a lot more resources, so they tend to fight cases very, very heavily. They’re typically aggressive in how they defend the case.
