Pasadena Truck Accident Attorneys
Seeking Justice Through Personal Injury Claims
When a semi-truck is involved in an accident, chances are severe injuries will be sustained in the crash, especially if motorcyclists or pedestrians are involved. Out of all the different types of auto accidents, truck accidents tend to be the most severe because of the large size and weight of these vehicles.
People who are affected by truck accidents tend to have extreme injuries, such as brain & spinal cord injuries, burns, and limb amputation. One out of every 9 trucking accidents will result in fatality and this shows how dangerous trucks can truly be during crashes.
Common Causes of Trucking Accidents
There are many reasons why truck accidents occur, including:
- Lack of training or experience on the part of the truck driver
- Overloaded or oversized trucks
- Poorly maintained truck brakes
- Fatigued or tired driver; driving too long and too many hours without rest
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Truck drivers driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol
- Unsafe safety systems, reflectors, lights, and other warning devices
- Running off the road
- Speeding over the limit or driving at high speeds beyond the road and weather conditions
- Driving in conditions of poor visibility due to fog, snow, rain, or smoke
- Dangerous or reckless truck driver with a long record of wrecks and fatal traffic accidents
- Aggressive driving behavior
