Truck accidents are particularly devastating given the great forces involved. In addition to their massive size, truck drivers are under great pressure to drive long hours and deliver supplies on time. Although most trips end safely, it is inevitable that trucks will crash given that there are about 15.5 million trucks moving 9.4 billion tons of freight in a given year.
A seemingly minor mistake made by the driver of a passenger car, such as a lane change without a turn signal, can mean a multi-car pileup and great injury when an 18-wheeler is involved.
What Makes Truck Accidents Unique
Truck accidents differ from other vehicle collisions because of the issues that can arise during litigation, and the severity of the injuries that can result.
The legal processes following a truck accident can seem intimidating, because truck drivers are backed by their employer, their legal team, and their insurance provider. With a team of people supporting them, it may appear that truckers have an advantage during an accident claim. However, truck drivers are also subject to strict regulations. They are required to maintain comprehensive records, so any violation will be on file and can be used as evidence of liability. Our Orange County truck accident attorneys understand the complexities of 18-wheeler collisions, and are prepared to use our knowledge to represent you.
Collisions with semi-trucks often result in brain injuries, spine injuries, bone fractures, burns, and other injuries that require intensive surgery and rehabilitation. The victims of 18-wheeler accidents commonly are left with expensive medical bills and the costs that arise from being unable to work.
Truck accidents are particularly devastating in many ways:
- Trucks are massive vehicles and a collision involves high-speed and heavy impact forces. A seemingly minor mistake made by the driver of a passenger car, such as a lane change without a turn signal, can mean a multi-car pileup and great injury when an 18-wheeler is involved.
- Truck drivers are under great pressure to drive long hours and deliver supplies on time. Although most trips end safely, it is inevitable that trucks will crash given that there are about 15.5 million trucks moving 9.4 billion tons of freight in a given year.
- Both Federal and State law recognizes the risks that the trucking industry creates for ordinary drivers on the road. Indeed, because trucking companies use these vehicles to make money, their drivers must be commercially licensed, and commercial drivers must carry far more insurance than regular road users – a minimum of $750,000 in California, and usually in excess of $1 million dollars. In contrast, regular drivers must carry just $15,000 in liability coverage.
