A little bit. Typically, truck accidents cause more serious injuries, possibly even death. The amount of compensation our clients can receive often rises when the injuries are more serious. This means that people injured by trucks can typically come away with a larger settlement than someone struck by a regular passenger car.
Of course, every case is different. If your injuries are minor, it doesn’t matter whether a truck or a passenger sedan struck you. Your compensation is determined by the severity of your injuries, the amount of money you have lost because of the accident, and your degree of fault.
