Nationwide, big trucks were involved in over 56,000 injury accidents in 2007. In the State of California, almost 6,000 people were injured in 2007 as a result of large truck accidents. Contributing factors cited in many of these accidents include weather, road conditions, and vehicle performance.
However, a study released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) shows that driver behavior is ten times more likely than any other factor to be the prime cause of accidents involving big trucks. Fatigue, inattention, and aggression factor into many large truck crashes, meaning that many large truck accidents are the result of negligence and even malicious intent.

The Costs of a Large Truck Accident
Big truck accident lawyers are personal injury attorneys who specialize in recovering the real costs of an accident involving large trucks. These legal professionals understand the increased likelihood of negligence on the driver’s part, and are familiar with California law as it pertains specifically to the litigation surrounding a big truck accident.
All large vehicles, including big trucks, have a greater potential to cause damage than smaller vehicles. Brain injuries, spine injuries, traumatic amputation, coma, and even death are likely. Severe injuries are very costly in terms of medical expenses. A driver’s personal injury liability insurance company will try to limit their financial responsibility as much as possible. A big truck accident lawyer fights for fair and adequate compensation for those injured in large truck accidents.
Medical expenses are only one component of the real costs of a large truck accident. Lost wages, decreased productivity, and other financial burdens can affect an accident victim unless fair compensation is received. Big truck accident lawyers also ensure that a judge or jury understands the non-tangible harm inflicted on the victim. Emotional distress, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship are all very real issues that deserve consideration.
