Trucking accidents are more hazardous than those in car accidents, as they are extremely dangerous. When trucks operate at high speeds, and in crowded areas and in areas with a lot of traffic, the odds of having an accident due to a collision with an object or another vehicle rises significantly. A truck crash usually causes much more damage than an automobile due to the dimensions of the truck and the weight distribution. The impact of a truck crash are often fatal, especially when the driver of the truck is not wearing seatbelts, or is operating at a dangerous speed. It is also a matter of fatigue due to long hours in traffic when you’re driving the big truck.
