Truck Collisions in California

Each year approximately 4,000 people die in the United States from accidents involving buses, commercial vehicles, or semi-trucks. While trucking accidents only make up about 4% of all motor vehicle accidents, roughly 8% of all fatal collisions involve trucks. This means trucking accidents are far more likely to be fatal than most other types of motor vehicle crashes.

Most accidents involving semi-trucks fall into one of the following categories:

  • Jackknife accidents
  • Rear-end accidents
  • Rollover accidents
  • Brake failure incidents
  • Blind spot accidents

Whether the accident was caused by an error made by the driver or the trucking company, even the smallest mistakes can have serious repercussions. If you were injured in an accident involving a truck, it is important that you contact a legal representative who can investigate the circumstance of your crash and determine who may be held liable. In most trucking accidents, either the driver or employer is liable, though other parties may also be responsible.

Common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver intoxication
  • Improper loading of the truck bed or trailer
  • Inadequate truck inspection
  • Poorly maintained truck
  • Manufacturing error regarding the truck or vehicle part
  • Negligent driver hiring practices
  • Inadequate driver training
