The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that most deaths in truck accidents are occupants of smaller passenger vehicles. Victims of truck accidents often suffer very serious injuries, even wrongful deaths, because of the size of trucks. Victims can include people motorcycles, cars, even pedestrians can be involved. Trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, compared to the 4,000 pounds of a standard passenger vehicle. This weight differential contributes to the severity of injuries suffered in a truck accident. The mechanics of operating and controlling a truck in motion are very different from smaller passenger vehicles. For instance, trucks require a longer distance than cars to come to a complete stop, this simple fact can result in deadly consequences under the wrong circumstances. Which is why there are very strict government regulations concerning the licensing of truck drivers, and the maintenance and operation of trucks.

What are the Most Common Causes of Truck Accidents?

The common causes of truck accidents can be categorized broadly as:

  • Human – where driver performance is to blame; 
  • Vehicle – where truck parts and maintenance fail; and
  • Environment – where weather and road conditions compromise the operation of the truck.

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration rules and regulations for truck drivers and truck companies take these common causes into account. Everything from the hours of service, the distance driven, the load on a truck, and the schedule of truck maintenance are regulated and closely monitored.

Failure to adhere to the regulations can give rise to negligence. Any person who is injured in an accident as a result of such negligence may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. To succeed in a claim, the injured victim needs only to prove that the accident was the legal cause of their injuries, and that they suffered actual losses as a result.

What if the Truck Company Denies Responsibility for the Accident?

It is typical for truck owners to try to deny responsibility for the consequences of accidents involving their trucks. Truck accident cases can be very complex because of the various factors that could be at play in a single accident. For example, the accident might be partly due to a defective part installed in the truck. The manufacturer of the defective part would bear some responsibility for the losses caused by their defective product. Having an experienced accident lawyer in San Bernardino by your side is the best way to ensure that your interests are fully protected, and that every party legally responsible for your injuries, including brain injury or spinal cord injury, bears the burden of making you whole again.
