Why Are Trucking Accidents More Complicated Than Other Types Of Accidents?

Saturday, May 6th, 2023

Compared to other types of crashes, truck accidents tend to be more complicated for several reasons:

  • The trucking industry is heavily regulated, so additional federal regulations need to be considered when determining liability in a trucking accident.
  • Due to their size and weight, trucks tend to cause much more damage than smaller vehicles like cars and pickup trucks.
  • Most trucking companies carry high-value insurance policies, so there is much at stake for the trucking company and the insurance company when a truck accident happens. That means there is a greater likelihood of dispute over who is responsible for the crash.
