In most cases, these trucks arrive safely to their destination, but sometimes truck drivers make mistakes and a devastating accident can result.

The Dangers of Savannah, Georgia Truck Accidents

When a truck accident happens, motorists on the roadways are at serious risk of being badly hurt. Truck accidents are among the most dangerous and deadly of crashes for many reasons including the fact that:

  • Trucks can jackknife or roll over, both of which can cause major injuries if other drivers are crushed by the large vehicle.
  • Cars can slide underneath trucks in an under-ride accident, which can cause serious injury including brain damage, spinal cord damage or broken bones and fractures.
  • Trucks are much larger than passenger cars, with a vehicle weight of as much as 80,000 pounds compared with the average passenger vehicle weighing in at 3,000 to 5,000 pounds.
  • Trucks have large blind spots and cars can be sideswiped or crushed, especially when a truck is making a wide right turn.

For these and many other reasons, motorists involved in truck accidents often suffer permanent and expensive injuries or are even killed in the crash.
