There are many reasons why a truck accident is more intense than car accidents, some of these reasons are:
Who is responsible for a truck accident?
Truck accidents are much more complex than any other accident, because truck drivers are not always able to stop. They are much bigger than a car and take a lot more distance to stop. Trucks also have a much bigger blind spot than most cars, meaning they are not able to see a car if they need to make big turns or move lanes.
Many people and organizations are involved, since the trucks are owned by companies. The driver may be protected by their company. Which is why Reed Injury Law Firm is here to make sure the company involved gives you your full compensation.
Due to this reason, many people can be responsible for the accident: like the truck driver, its owner, etc. Sometimes, the vehicle's manufacturer can also be held accountable for the accident if they manufactured faulty parts of the truck.
And many a time, the shipper or loader who handles the truck can also be the reason for the accident and can be held responsible. If a truck is off balance it can cause the truck to tilt while turning.
