Not Your Average Wreck: 18-Wheeler Accidents Are Different

18-wheeler accidents differ from typical car accidents in several key ways:

The sheer size and weight of these commercial vehicles make them more dangerous in collisions. An 18-wheeler can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded, compared to the average car, which weighs around 4,000 pounds. As a result, accidents involving 18-wheelers often result in severe injuries and extensive damage. The complexity of 18-wheeler accidents extends beyond the vehicles themselves.

These accidents typically involve multiple parties, including: 

  • the truck driver
  • the trucking company
  • the cargo owner
  • and potentially other motorists. 

Determining liability in these cases requires a thorough investigation and a comprehensive understanding of both state and federal trucking regulations.
