THE DANGERS OF A TRUCK RELATED ACCIDENT

The trucking industry is the lifeblood of distribution in this country and our economy depends upon the transportation of goods and services by way of semi truck and trailer. Each day, thousands of trucks traverse California’s major interstates, highways and lesser-traveled urban streets. Any truck related accident poses a great danger due to the sheer weight of its frame and cargo load. Crashes involving semi trucks and/or trucks with trailers can be especially damaging to property, health and financial well-being due to the significant size, weight and mass of these rigs. When not operated correctly – such as when they are overloaded or maneuvered carelessly in adverse driving conditions – collisions, jackknifing and rollovers may occur, causing cargo to spill onto the road where other vehicles and drivers may be affected. With a big rig truck and trailer, careless driving and negligence often results in fatalities to both the driver and other involved parties.




TRUCK DRIVER NEGLIGENCE AND RECKLESS DRIVING

Many truck drivers operate within strict schedule parameters that force them to drive long distances and abnormally long hours. To maintain timelines they often make reckless decisions to violate speed limits and forego sleep. Pressured by their employers to shorten delivery times to ensure an increase in profit, they may voluntarily violate laws created by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and opt for a more reckless pace. Some employers go so far as to encourage reckless driving by providing increased compensation for early deliveries. Long driving hours can have a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of a driver, causing dangerous fatigue and an impaired ability to drive safely due to sleep deprivation. In some cases, truck drivers force themselves awake with illegal and/or prescription drugs that may further impair their ability to drive safely. These factors combined cause dangerous, often fatal truck accidents.

KNOWING YOUR RIGHTS IN A TRUCK INJURY ACCIDENT
If you or someone you know has been injured in a truck related accident, you have the right to seek compensation for all injuries and losses suffered as a result. Determining legal responsibility is essential, and liable parties may include:

  • Truck Drivers (responsible for negligent and reckless driving behavior)
  • Trucking Companies (responsible for negligent drivers and equipment)
  • Truck/Trailer Manufacturers (responsible for machine/part defects)
  • Government Agencies (responsible for road conditions)

In some situations, more than one party may be liable for your accident and it is critical that you seek representation from an attorney skilled in the specifics of trucking accidents.
