Truck accidents are less common than car accidents, but the laws applicable to each are generally the same. You can read the car accidents page for a discussion about how insurance companies have the upper hand when an injured person does not have counsel.
One of the differences between truck accidents and car accidents is often the type of injuries sustained. Because of the size of the vehicles involved and the fact that the accidents often occur at highway speeds, truck accidents can result in horrific physical injuries and, all too often, psychological injuries. The feeling of powerlessness in an accident with a massive truck adds to the psychological trauma. Anxiety around driving is one of the factors that make recovery from a truck accident so difficult.
