Fatal Truck Accidents


We're Here to Help You Win

Commercial trucks are important partners in California’s booming economy. These vehicles are instrumental in transporting goods across large distances on U.S. roadways. The sheer mass of these mammoth vehicles, however, expose other motorists to risks of fatal truck accidents.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has revealed that approximately 5,000 fatal truck accidents happen every year. When fatal truck accidents occur, families who have lost their loved one in these collisions will likely be entitled to compensation for their profound loss when the crash is due to the negligence or recklessness of:

  • The truck driver or another motorist
  • The trucking company that employs the truck driver and/or owns the truck involved in the collision
  • The vehicle equipment manufacturer, when a piece of equipment on the truck failed to work properly and, as a result, caused the accident
  • The auto repair shop and/or technician who previously repaired the truck and whose mistakes caused the fatal crash.

Fatal Truck Accidents Due to Human Error

While fatal truck accidents may, in rare situations, be attributed to unpreventable factors, most cases are caused by human error such as:

  • Driver intoxication
  • Driver exhaustion or fatigue which significantly impair driver reaction times and ability to perceive changing driving conditions
  • Driver’s inexperience, affecting his ability to properly maneuver the truck on dangerous road conditions or which can lead to jackknifing
  • Driver’s reckless behavior, which can involve violating traffic laws, speeding, cutting off other drivers, failing to yield the right of way, and run red lights
  • An improperly secured load, which can break free during transport
  • Trucking company’s negligence in failing to train drivers, failing to maintain trucks, and violating federal regulations
