As stated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA):
There may be no other auto accident more traumatic than one involving an eighteen-wheel truck. Tractor trailers can weigh up to 80 tons and accidents usually result in severe injuries and death. If you or a loved one have been injured or killed in a collision with a big rig truck you may have questions about how to pay for your medical bills and what to do about your pain and suffering. Our Inland Empire Law Offices specialize in representing victims and their families when involved in a semi-truck accident.

The victims of truck accident may also experience lesser injuries such as whiplash, back and neck pain, severe bruising, lacerations, and mental anguish.
Such injuries can severely limit you and your family’s ability to lead a normal life. You may require extensive rehabilitation and medical treatment following a semi-truck accident. Serious injuries may leave you unable to work and pay your bills, leading to the foreclosure of your home, bankruptcy, and damage to your credit. You need the experience of a Riverside/San Bernardino semi-truck injury lawyer to get you the monetary compensation you deserve.
FMCSA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) conducted a large study involving 120,000 large truck crashes that occurred in period of less than three years. The objective of the study was to examine the reasons for serious crashes involving large trucks with a gross vehicle weight over 10,000 lbs. In its Large Truck Crash Causation Study Analysis Brief, FMCSA reports that 55 percent of large trucks involved in accidents were assigned the critical reason for the crash. In descending order, the top 10 factors contributing to crashes assigned to large trucks and their drivers were:
Commercial truck accident claims are complex cases involving federal regulations and multiple potentially liable parties. Collecting evidence may be tricky, as records can be falsified or insufficient. Trucking accidents often cause catastrophic or fatal injuries to passenger vehicle occupants. This means higher damages, higher stakes, and a more vigorous defense. You may be dealing with more than one insurance company, as trucking companies and their drivers may have separate insurance policies, and both parties may be liable for your injuries.
