I was recently involved in a bad collision with an 18-wheeler. I never expected the kinds of injuries I sustained. What makes truck wrecks different from passenger vehicle accidents?

Truck wrecks are more serious than passenger vehicle accidents due to the size and weight of big rigs. Accidents involving a semi are often catastrophic due to the fact that a fully loaded big rig can weigh anywhere up to 80,000 pounds. In contrast, a car weighs about 3,000 pounds.

A moving force the size of a big rig means a collision is more likely to end in a fatality or very serious injuries because the heavier the vehicle the longer it takes to stop.
