You can super size your meal or choose the biggest—and therefore best—TV screen. You can choose the extra large size of just about anything, including your wheels. While much of Europe trends toward smaller vehicles, bigger is better seems to be the motto in much of the U.S., with more people opting for a roomier feel in a wide range of sport utility vehicles.

You might not think twice about the dangers of large vehicles surrounding you until your little car is involved in a collision with one of these super-sized vehicles. When a small vehicle and a large vehicle collide, the occupants of the smaller vehicle frequently end up seriously injured. You may be in need of expensive medical care if you’ve been involved in a collision with any of the following:

  • Tractor-trailer
  • Box truck
  • Delivery truck
  • Construction vehicle
  • Pickup truck
  • SUV
  • Hummer

Top Reasons for a Big Crash

Serious truck accidents can occur anywhere and at any time, but the following factors increase the likelihood of a serious Maryland truck crash:

Work Zones

Narrow lanes and tight spots due to road work makes driving a little extra tricky in construction zones, especially for large vehicles. Accidents in these spots are common.

Inclement Weather

Snow and ice can cause any vehicle to slip and slide. When it comes to large vehicles, the extra momentum can give way to a super-sized crash.

High Speed

Increased speeds make it more difficult to stop to avoid a crash. Speed also increases the momentum, leading to a higher risk of serious injury or death in a crash.
