California is a major hub for millions of truck drivers annually. These skilled over-the-road drivers are relied upon by many businesses to bring products in and out of state. As many logistics companies incentivize quick deliveries by paying per mile, you’ll find many 18-wheelers flying down the interstate looking to deliver cargo quickly. Excessive driving hours mixed with high speeds is a recipe for disaster.
At Compass Law Group, PC, we recognize traumatic impact truck accidents can have on drivers operating smaller passenger cars. The g-force generated when a semi hauling a fully loaded 53’ trailer hits a smaller vehicle at 40 miles per hour is equivocal to a small building being dropped onto the victim’s body. Our Santa Clarita truck accident attorney reconstructs accidents when litigating claims.
Unfortunately, many innocent victims lose their lives because veteran truck drivers exceeded state-regulated drive hours to make that extra buck. Trucking companies are incentivized by manufacturers and other distributors to make runs quickly or lose their account with that company. That pressure is passed on to truck drivers every day. Too much pressure mixed with not enough sleep causes accidents.
Distractions are another common denominator in big rig accidents. Newer trucks have high-tech computers which help route drivers to various locations to drop off or pick uploads. Checking these computers, texting family members or trying to post comments on social media is never suggested when behind the wheel of any vehicle, let alone one with the capacity to kill innocent people.
Once trucks cause a horrific accident, lives are changed forever. Compass Law Group, PC works hard to make victims or their surviving loved ones financially whole again, although we’d love nothing more than to reverse this tragedy. Significant compensation is possible in accidents which cause catastrophic physical and financial losses, and the Santa Clarita truck accident attorney you retain will fight for it.
Every year, over 500,000 truck-related accidents occur across the United States. Should they happen in California, retaining our services would allow us to go after the driver, insurer and their company?
