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

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.

A good personal injury lawyer can help explain the difference between a normal car accident and a catastrophic truck accident. RMD law’s Orange County truck accident lawyers have experience holding truckers accountable, even when truck drivers try to escape responsibility in order to keep their insurance rates low.
