Damage in a Truck vs. Car Accident
There are several factors that make a car versus truck accident so serious, particularly for the driver or other occupants of the car as opposed to the truck:
The weight of a truck - a light truck may weigh at least 1,000 pounds more than a car, and a large truck may weigh anywhere from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds fully loaded (or possibly more with a special permit).
The larger size of a truck - trucks are typically taller than the average passenger car, and this may mean that the truck will ride over the bumper of the smaller vehicle, causing extensive damage to the softer, higher part of the car's frame.
The frame of a truck - a truck's frame is typically stiffer and heavier than the frame of a car. This means that the truck will not absorb energy during a collision but will instead transfer that energy, most often to the softer frame of the car.
When you take into account the serious damage that may be sustained in a car versus truck accident, it is important to take the opportunity to involve an attorney. Contact our offices today for your free San Francisco car accident consultation!
