Accidents involving passenger vehicles are substantially different than those involving large commercial trucks and passenger vehicles. Accidents involving semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles typically are extremely severe and often fatal for the occupants of smaller vehicles.
The size and weight of semi-trucks make accidents involving them extremely hazardous. The average semi-truck is up to 30 times heavier than a passenger vehicle. Additionally, the height of a semi-truck’s trailer above the road creates increased potential hazards. Owing to this increased height of large commercial trucks, shorter and smaller passenger vehicles can slide underneath these large semi-trucks. Even at slow speeds, weight and size differences between these types of vehicles can lead to serious or fatal injury. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in an accident involving a large truck, Hunter Law Firm’s Tidewater truck accident attorneys can help. Consultations are always free.
