There are three ways that truck collisions can differ from those between passenger cars: size, cargo, and liability. Starting with size, your average sedan weighs around 3,000 pounds. A commercial truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, per the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). With the increased mass, these vehicles require more time to stop, and the force of an impact, even at slower speeds, can cause traumatic results in property damage and physical injuries.
Larger trucks are typically used to transport materials and goods. The cargo they carry can be contained in a trailer or strapped down to a flatbed. If those goods are not secured properly, they can shift and move, either throwing the load off balance or falling from the truck and striking another vehicle.
Finally, due to the nature of a commercial vehicle, there are numerous parties involved with the operation of the vehicle. There can be multiple liable parties involved who may include:
Federal regulations require truck drivers and trucking companies to keep records of their operations. The evidence you may need to show negligence on the part of one of those parties may be held by them. To obtain those records, you will need to file a spoliation letter to prevent the destruction of that evidence.
