Riverside | San Bernardino Truck Accident Attorney

Truck Accident Attorney

One of every nine traffic fatalities involves a trucking accident.
When tragedy strikes, you need a personal injury lawyer in your corner.
The Law is clear that trucking companies and their drivers should be held accountable for their actions.  There is a big correlation between the common causes of truck accidents and the responsibilities of Truck Drivers and the companies.
Common causes of Trucking Accidents are:

  • Fatigued, sleepy or tired driver; driving too long and too many hours without rest. It is vitally important for an attorney to know what to do with that evidence once it is discovered.
  • Inadequate training of the truck driver
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Oversized trucks
  • Poorly maintained truck brakes
  • Driving in conditions of poor visibility or traction due to bad weather or visibility conditions, including fog, snow, rain, or smoke
  • Truck driver inexperience
  • Speeding over the limit or driving at high speeds beyond the road and weather conditions
  • Running off the road
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Aggressive driving behavior
  • Truck drivers driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol
  • Dangerous or reckless truck driver with a long record of wrecks and fatal traffic accidents
  • Unsafe safety systems, reflectors, lights, and other warning devices
  • Failure of truck to install an under-ride protection under-guard.

Responsibilities of Truck Drivers:

  • In a truck driver’s job, safety is first. A truck driver should never be allowed to sacrifice safety for any reason.
  • A truck driver’s full attention must always be on the road, without lapses. He must stop driving if he cannot do this.
  • A truck driver must anticipate dangerous situations created by environmental conditions or other drivers so the truck driver can avoid an accident.
  • A truck driver must maintain a safe following distance, must look where he is going, and must plan ahead, and must drive at a speed safe for conditions.
  • An 18-wheeler is likely to cause far more damage than a car.
  • An 18-wheeler is one of the most dangerous things on a highway because it can kill and injure the most people.
  • The safest person in a wreck involving an 18-wheeler is usually the 18-wheeler’s driver.
  • Trucking companies make a profit by putting trucks on the road.  Allowing the truck to create a danger zone around it is negligent because the truck company and the driver must fully contain the danger.  If they cannot, they must not put the truck on the road.
  • A trucking company’s first consideration when hiring drivers must be safety.
  • A trucking company’s most important training job is safety.
  • A trucking company’s first consideration when deciding whether to keep a driver is to gather the information necessary to see if the driver is safe.
