A major difference is that in truck accidents, trucking regulations come into play in the lawsuit. There are many regulations dealing with how much weight an 18-wheeler can be dragging, how the vehicles are loaded, etc. These regulations do not come into play in a typical automobile accident lawsuit.
Another major difference in a truck accident is the destructive impact caused by the size of the vehicle involved in the collision, or both vehicles if it’s a collision between two trucks. As a result, a truck accident is more likely to cause greater injury and property damage to the smaller vehicle and its passengers.
