Common Causes Of Truck Accidents In California
Truck drivers have a challenging job. They are required to drive for long hours on very little sleep and meet strict delivery deadlines. Though these factors may certainly play a role, truck accidents are not always the fault of the driver, so it is important to look at the accident from all angles to determine the true cause. Some of the common factors that may contribute to a truck accident include the following:
- Drowsy driving
- Lack of visibility, usually caused by large blind spots
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Cellphone use or other forms of distracted driving
- Failure to maintain the truck, resulting in mechanical issues
- Failure to brake in time
- Faulty parts that the truck driver was unaware of
Available Compensation For Accident Victims
If you have suffered from serious injuries due to a truck accident, you must consider your legal options. Taking legal action may seem overwhelming, but it can provide great financial relief for the physical, emotional and financial burdens that you are facing as a result of the accident. Some of the damages that a Sacramento truck accident lawyer may recover on your behalf include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of independence
Don’t Wait Too Long To File
The state of California implements a statute of limitations for most legal matters. The statute of limitations acts as a deadline by which a victim must file their case. For personal injury cases in California, legal action must be taken no later than two years from the date of the accident. If you fail to file your case within this time, you may lose the opportunity to recover damages and your pursuit of justice will come to an end. Do not hesitate to contact The Law Offices of Dale R.
