Truck accidents can be worse than car accidents because of the sheer size and weight of the truck compared to a car. Trucks are much heavier and can cause greater damage to other vehicles and individuals involved in the accident. In addition, due to their size and weight, trucks can take longer to stop, making it more difficult for drivers to avoid a collision. Furthermore, due to the amount of cargo they are carrying, trucks can be more prone to losing control and spill their load, which can cause hazardous conditions for other vehicles on the road.
