Don't assume a truck accident is just the truck driver's fault

To understand how truck accidents are so prolific is to understand the entire big picture behind and beyond a behemoth diesel-powered cargo container on wheels attempting to stay in the lines and share the roads with cars they may not even see.  While that may be the most obvious contributing factor to a truck accident, what else is there? Investigating this goes far in determining possible scenarios of causation and pursuit of compensation.

Many truck drivers drive for companies. Those companies typically have a fleet that commits to clients to deliver merchandise within a specific time frame. The more merchandise that is moving, the more money the truck driver and the company it drives for, stands to make. While federal trucking regulations hold truck drivers to limited hours and enforced downtime, drivers may alter log books in order to make more money and make up for any lost time due to traffic or other factors that could cause them to arrive late for a delivery. This introduces driver fatigue and recklessness.

Also, the actual trucks require upkeep and experience significant wear and tear as they work to keep up with cross-country orders. Negligent truck maintenance is a definite contributor to accidents and can even be grounds for a driver pursuing compensation from the company responsible for maintaining the trucks.

If you were injured in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, you may have grounds for substantial compensation.  You are probably dealing with costly vehicle repairs or replacement, medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation and in some tragic cases, funeral expenses. The ongoing emotional pain and suffering that won't subside cannot be assigned a financial sum but the cost is the most significant when carried by our loved ones. A California personal injury attorney may be able to take on the tasks around your pursuit of remuneration so that you can focus wholly on your recovery.
