Truck Accident Injuries

Due to the extra size and weight, commercial truck accidents result in very catastrophic injuries, such as:

  • Spinal cord injuries, including partial or full paralysis
  • Head and brain injuries from whiplash or blunt force trauma, requiring hospitalization or surgery
  • Bone fractures in the tibia, fibula, femur, ribs, hip, pelvis, skull, wrist, back disks, clavicle, and arms
  • Disfigurement or amputation of the limbs due to loss of blood flow, crushing injury, or severing

The cost of treating these injuries can easily reach $200,000 with a serious injury or $3.6 million with a fatality. Insurance often proves inadequate at covering the full cost of property damage and medical treatments, forcing motorists to file a civil lawsuit in court to hold truckers accountable in cases of negligence.

What Causes Truck Accidents?

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, nearly a third of large truck crashes are attributable to driver-related factors, including:

  • Driving while impaired
  • Failure to yield right-of-way
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Fatigued driving
  • Jack-knifing
  • Lane departures
  • Loss of control
  • Mechanical vehicle failure
  • Medical disability
  • Poor judgement
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Shifting cargo
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating

In these cases, it could be the individual truck driver deemed “at fault.” It could also be the trucker’s employer, the shipper, truck maintenance personnel, a truck manufacturer, or even the government (if the roadways were poorly maintained). Hiring a Los Angeles truck accident lawyer will help you get to the bottom of what happened. Be aware that the trucker’s union will be actively protecting the other driver. If you don’t have someone fighting for your rights, evidence can get lost and the truth may never be known.
