Injuries in Truck Accidents
Truck Accident Attorney
The injuries that a driver, pedestrian, cyclist or passenger may sustain in a truck accident have the potential to be severe or life-threatening. The disparity in the size and weight of the vehicles involved is the primary factor that contributes to the dangerous nature of truck accidents. While the truck driver may walk away with only minor scratches, the occupants of the other vehicle may experience catastrophic injuries.

Why Truck Accidents Cause Serious Injuries
Any truck accident, even one that occurs at a relatively low speed, may have the potential to cause serious injuries. Following are some of the factors that contribute to this:
- The large size and weight of the truck increases the force of a collision with another object.
- The smaller object in a collision will typically sustain more damage than the larger object (hence the likelihood that the occupants of the other vehicle will be injured as opposed to the driver of the large truck.)
- The height of an 18-wheeler or semi truck's undercarriage makes it possible for a smaller vehicle to be trapped underneath, increasing damage to the smaller vehicle and its occupants.
- A delivery truck may be carrying hazardous material that can cause a fire or explosion, such as gasoline, or may be carrying large objects that can spread on the highway or fall on another vehicle.
