Why are Truck Accidents so dangerous?

Photo of semi truck zooming by on an Orange County expressway next to passenger carOur expert opinion: trucks and their trailers have a destructive combination of large mass and speed, along with the potential to impact many smaller vehicles, making them very scary and dangerous. The damage caused by out-of-control trucks can be much greater than most other highway accidents leading to many injuries and deadly outcomes.

Anyone who has been involved in a crash with a big rig knows that this isn’t like a common accident and there is plenty to worry about. Large commercial trucks cannot stop as quickly or maneuver nearly as well as a car can, plus they are much larger and heavier!

Pursuant to the extensive dimensions and intricate nature of these large trucks, operators of commercial trucks within the jurisdiction of the State of California, as well as in accordance with federal trucking laws, are mandated to secure a commercial driver’s license (CDL)  prior to the operation of their truck. Still, accidents happen due to human error or negligence, or a combination thereof.

Types of Truck Accidents in Orange County

Read our expert insights into how in Orange County, various forms of truck collisions are frequently observed. Below are some of the most common, and some reasoning behind why they occur:

  • Blind Spot Accidents: Large trucks have extensive blind spots on all four sides, leading to collisions when smaller vehicles are in these zones. Some interchanges, like the El Toro Y (where I-5 and I-405 meet), are notoriously complex. These can be confusing for truck drivers unfamiliar with the area, increasing the risk of accidents.
  • Jackknife Accidents: This occurs when a truck’s trailer skews at an angle to the tractor, forming an acute angle similar to a folding pocket knife and crushing anything in it’s way. Orange California doesn’t get any ice or snow, but even rainy weather can reduce traction enough for a truck to jackknife if the driver slams on the brakes.
  • Rollovers: These happen when a truck driver loses control, causing the truck to fall onto its side. Orange County doesn’t have many highways and freeways with large ditches compared to the rest of the country, but many sections of the 5 freeway, and others in South Orange county see truck rollovers. The trailers roll over first typically, then the cab with the truck driver–at this point they are no longer in control of their truck whatsoever.
  • Rear-end Collisions: Due to the longer stopping distances required for trucks, they are often involved in rear-end collisions when the driver fails to stop in time. Trucks coming up from Mexico and driving through Orange County to get to Los Angeles and other areas are notorious for this as the drivers are more likely very tired
  • Underride Accidents: This refers to an accident where a smaller vehicle slides under the rear or side of a larger truck.
  • Lost Load Accidents: This occurs when cargo is improperly secured and falls onto the roadway. A passenger vehicle or motorcyclist hitting this would be very hazardous.
  • Tire Blowouts: A sudden tire failure can lead to the truck driver losing control.
  • Wide Turns: Because of their size, trucks often need to make wide turns, which can lead to collisions with other vehicles. Most intersections in North Orange County are truck-friendly, but not all. A truck driving on a narrow road restricted to large weight trucks would help your case.
  • T-bone Accidents: Occurs at intersections when one vehicle strikes the side of another. When it’s the truck doing the striking, it can result in a terrible crash.
  • Head-on Collisions: When a truck collides directly with another vehicle coming from the opposite direction. This type of accident tends to happens mostly in South Orange County like Mission Viejo and with smaller cabover type trucks doing rush deliveries in the early morning hours

Common Vehicles in OC Truck Accidents include

  • Big Rigs and Semi-trucks (either local or long-distance trucking)
  • 18-wheelers
  • FedEx trucks
  • UPS trucks
  • Box Trucks
  • Delivery Trucks
  • Amazon trucks
  • Dump Trucks
  • Tow trucks
  • Cement trucks

Truck Traffic and Accident Statistics in Orange County

Although the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the US Department of Transportation regulate the trucking industry in the US and California, accidents still occur. Below are the most relevent and recent statistics for Orange County

  • In 2022, there were 648 accidents in Orange County involving large trucks only. This was 4.40% of all motor vehicle crashes (14,740)
  • In 2021, there were 733 accidents in Orange County involving large trucks only. This was 4.74% of all motor vehicle crashes (15,480)
  • In 2020, there were 526 accidents in Orange County involving large trucks only. This was 4.32% of all motor vehicle crashes (12,188)
    • This number is likely lower and outside the standard deviation of the past 10 years due to COVID-19 and the reduction in vehicular traffic in Orange County during this year.

What Are Common Causes of Truck Accidents We’ve Seen?

Grainy photo resembling cell phone capture of a worn-out truck driver leaning against his truck at a nighttime truck stop

Truck accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, some specific to Orange County, and some not. Here are some of the most common causes:

  1. Driver Fatigue: Truck drivers often work long hours and may not get adequate rest, leading to fatigue and drowsiness which can impair their driving abilities leading to another vehicle struck by their truck.
  2. Speeding: Truck drivers who are trying to meet deadlines may exceed speed limits or drive too fast for conditions, increasing the risk of accidents.
  3. Distracted Driving: Distractions such as cell phone use, eating, or using a GPS can take a driver’s attention away from the road. The penalties in the real-world are less than for other things like impaired driving or speeding (it’s difficult for police to prove distracted driving) so it happens more frequently than many would think.
  4. Impaired Driving: This could include driving under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or even prescription medication. This can be quite extreme recklessness depending on the circumstances. In California recreational marijuana is legal for the general public, but note that for Commercial Driver’s License holders it remains strictly prohibited.
  5. Poor Truck Maintenance: Improper maintenance can lead to mechanical failures such as brake failures, tire blowouts, or steering issues that can cause accidents.
  6. Inadequate Training: Some truck drivers may not have been adequately trained to handle the particular demands of driving a large vehicle, leading to mistakes on the road. The recent shortage of truck drivers (and truck drivers willing to drive in California with all of it’s idiosyncrasies and strict emission regulations) means that the new crop of truckers may not be as experienced as the old guard.
  7. Unsecured Loads: If the cargo in the truck isn’t properly secured, it can shift during transit, causing the truck to become unbalanced and potentially tip over.
  8. Unsafe Lane Changes: Due to their size and blind spots, trucks need more space to change lanes. If a driver doesn’t take this into account, it can lead to accidents.
  9. Following Too Closely: Trucks require more time to stop than smaller vehicles. If a truck follows another vehicle too closely, there may not be enough time to stop to avoid a collision.
  10. Weather Conditions: Poor and foul weather, like rain, fog, snow, or icy roads, can make driving more hazardous, especially for large vehicles like trucks. In Orange County, fog and rain are typically the culprits. Note that since it rains so infrequently, the first few minutes of rain can turn a normal roadway into an extremely slick and slippery piece of asphalt which demands driver’s full attention.
  11. Reckless Driving: This includes aggressive driving behaviors like tailgating, cutting off other drivers, and ignoring traffic signals. Independent contractors or “owner operators” of trucks tend to do this more, since there’s no “how am I driving” sticker on their truck.
  12. Equipment Failure: This can include defective parts like faulty brakes, steering components, tires, or other critical and risky parts.

What are Common Types of Truck Accident Injuries We’ve Seen?

Common truck accidents injuries include:

  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Crush injuries
  • Bone fractures and broken bones throughout the body
  • Traumatic brain injuries and other head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Internal Injuries
  • Burns
  • Wrongful death fatalities

If a commercial truck crashes into your car, you and your passengers may have suffered serious injuries. Unseen internal injuries, like brain damage and spinal cord injuries, can go undetected, sometimes with catastrophic results. If the injuries result in death, the surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death claim.

What Do I Do After A Truck Accident?

Grainy photo resembling a distant zoom shot from a cell phone camera of a person standing beside an overturned semi truck after a car accident

The following steps should be taken as soon as possible after being in a truck accident:

  • Obtain Prompt Medical Attention: You may find yourself insisting that you don’t need medical attention. Nevertheless, at a minimum, you should obtain a prompt medical examination.
  • Preserve Evidence from the Accident Site: After a crash, it is important to preserve not only evidence of your medical condition but also evidence of what happened at the accident scene. The trucking company may have a rapid response team of experts and attorneys at the location almost immediately. They want to get critical measurements and photos before the vehicles and debris are cleared – which may happen before you can take them. Usually, the police will take crash-scene photos before the site is cleared. If not, request that they do so. If your condition and safety permits, take pictures of your own. Subtle clues from these photos may help your attorney’s experts reconstruct critical evidence that can help explain exactly what happened when that semi-truck or 18-wheeler collided with your car. Only preponderance of the evidence is required in a civil case such as a traffic and truck accident, and is contrasted with “beyond a reasonable doubt,” which is required to convict in a criminal trial and is much more difficult.
  • Preservation of the Vehicle: If anyone was substantially injured in an accident, it is very important that that you also preserve your vehicle until you retain a lawyer.
  • Contact a Top Truck Accident Lawyer: Trucking companies hire experienced accident attorneys who specialize in personal injury cases involving commercial trucks, to fight liability and limit their damages.

If you or a loved one have suffered a truck accident injury, you will need one of the best truck accident attorney representing you as well. Trial lawyers must be able to hire investigators, preserve evidence as needed, and communicate effectively with truck companies, insurance companies, police, witnesses, and medical care providers. In the case of a fatality, personal injury attorneys may even pursue a potential wrongful death case.

Who Is at Fault for Your Truck Accident? Is It the Truck Driver or The Trucking Companies?

Truck accident cases can be complex and expensive to prosecute. After an accident, you should realize that various possible defendants might be liable and responsible for compensating you for your pain and suffering. Sorting out negligent defendants is a complicated process and another reason why prompt investigation and liability analysis are crucial.

Note: Don’t talk to the trucking companies insurance agent about the accident or your injuries before speaking with an attorney. And certainly don’t sign anything!

Potential defendants who may be liable to you for your injuries and property loss include:

  • Parties to the Accident: This includes the truck driver and drivers of other vehicles who may have contributed to the trucking accident.
  • Defective Products Manufacturers and Retailers: Product defects that are present when the truck, its tires, engine parts, or other components.
  • Employers of the Truck Driver
  • Repair Facilities Responsible for the Maintenance: A repair facility that made faulty repairs to the vehicle that collided with your car may have contributed to your truck crash.
  • Government Entities Responsible for Maintenance of the Roads: Truck accidents may occur because the government has failed to ensure that the road would not be dangerous for drivers.

If you or a loved one were a victim of a traffic accident involving commercial vehicles, including semi-trucks, and 18 wheelers, make sure you seek a successful law firm with a qualified trucking accident lawyer for a free consultation. To get the most out of your settlement and recover substantial economic and non-economic damages that resulted from the accident, you’ll want us on your side.

How Much Compensation can an Attorney Get me From a Truck Accident?

Photorealistic image of a judge's gavel placed on a wooden desk in an ordinary courtroom setting

There isn’t a standard or “average” settlement amount you can get when it comes to legal cases involving truck and 18-wheeler accidents in California. We’ve seen compensation awarded from the $20,000 range to the $30 million range!

Catastrophic trucking accidents that result in severe and life-threatening injuries will receive the greatest compensation compared to minor incidents. Permanent disability, disfigurement and loss of enjoyment of life are terrible consequences and need to be truly compensated for.

A catastrophic accident causing fatality can turn into a wrongful death claim where even further damages may be awarded. To find out how much your truck accident claim may be worth, seeking the legal services of an experienced law firm can often be your best course of action to recover from economic and non-economic damages sustained and to get the full amount of compensation you deserve.

Factors related to compensation awarded

This lack of a “typical” compensation amount is largely due to the considerable variation in the facts and circumstances surrounding each incident, which inherently makes every settlement distinctly unique. Nonetheless, various contributing factors can provide guidance to estimate the potential value of your 18-wheeler accident lawsuit settlement.

These factors can include the severity and long-term impact of your injuries, the degree of the truck driver’s negligence, the level of insurance coverage carried by the trucking company, your lost income due to the accident, and even the quality and experience of your legal representation. All these elements combine to shape the unique contours of each settlement, meaning the potential value of your case is highly personalized to your particular situation.

Below are the legal guidelines for compensation:

  • Medical Bills – compensation for your past, present, and future costs of the medical treatments;
  • Property Damage – compensation for the damage to your car;
  • Pain and Suffering – compensation for the physical pain and limitations resulting from the crash;
  • Loss of Wages – compensation for the time you had to take off of work to recover from the accident or to visit doctors, therapists, and others who are helping you to cope with your injuries;
  • Impairment of Earning Capacity – compensation for the diminishment of your ability to earn a living;
  • Lifestyle Changes – compensation for the loss of enjoyment in your life due to debilitating injuries;
  • Life-Care – compensation for the ongoing non-medical needs you may have if you were badly injured; and
  • Punitive Damages – compensation if the trucking company’s intentional or reckless acts contributed to causing the crash that injured you.

Don’t simply accept a settlement offer from the insurance company without consulting with a truck accident lawyer with a successful track record.

How Can The Reeves Law Group Help with Your Truck Accident Case?

The Reeves Law Group can help you because we are highly experienced with truck accidents and we are a firm with the necessary resources needed to win your case. Our specialist truck accident plaintiff’s law firm will never settle your case for less than it is worth. Start with a free consultation to assess your case.

Large commercial vehicles have the potential to cause serious and catastrophic damages in a traffic accident and severe injuries to all individuals involved in the accident. Commercial truck accident victims have the legal right to seek recoverable economic, non-economic, and punitive damages due to negligence on the part of the trucking company, or the truck driver because the victims may hold the company that hired the trucker liable for the losses incurred.

Truck companies will generally do everything in their power to avoid liability for accidents caused by their truck drivers. They will employ tactics to try and minimize or avoid altogether paying for damages incurred by the victims.

Although filing a claim against a commercial truck company for negligence will often be your best chance at receiving any compensation, to make sure you receive the full amount of compensation you deserve, it is advisable to let a skilled and knowledgeable truck accident lawyer fight on your behalf against all responsible parties including the trucking companies, the truck drivers employed by them, and their insurance companies.

A relevant testimonial for the Reeves Law Group

“The Reeves Law Group team was helpful in answering my questions when I wasn’t sure exactly what steps to take after my accident.

I was involved in a hit and run on the freeway ramp where the I-405 South transitions into SR-73 South. I wasn’t really “hit.” In fact, the car in front of me was a work truck with a wooden fence mounted around the bed to secure equipment (similar to what many gardeners use). When I drove around the transition ramp a plastic bin fell off so quickly, I couldn’t dodge it. The bin then bounced off the ground and under my car! This lifted the front axel of my car off the ground, resulting in absolutely no control over steering! How could I? I didn’t have any wheels on the ground.

I SPUN and I hit the wall on the driver’s side! The car who hit me… RAN! Of course I couldn’t just follow after him and get his info.

Witnesses saw the front of my car lift off the ground and hit the wall, but because no other party was identified and the police could not find the bin, I was offered nothing! It was the middle of the day, but as far as the insurance company was concerned, no one else was on the freeway and I just “decided” to spin my car around myself to cause the accident. No evidence, no offer.

My lawyer really answered some questions I had regarding my accident. I simply called for a consultation and he really spent time and energy to offer his knowledge and experiences to help me out.”

How Our Claims Processing Works

Accidents involving trucks can be quite devastating, often resulting in serious losses. During such challenging times, having a seasoned lawyer by your side can be a lifesaver. They tackle the legal hurdles, allowing you to focus on your recovery. At the Reeves Law Group, our dedicated Orange County legal team are prepared to offer a helping hand and offer the full benefits of a true attorney client relationship.

First, pursuant to the laws of the State of California, an individual is mandated to initiate litigation for personal injuries within a period of two years subsequent to the date of the incident in question (time limit is important to note. Though in most cases it should be started as soon as possible after the accident).

This prescribed duration is referred to as the statute of limitations. Following the commencement of such litigation, the procedural progression and duration thereof may differ on a case-by-case basis. While certain claims may reach resolution within a matter of weeks, others may necessitate an extended period, potentially spanning months or years.

Here’s a glimpse and an example of what we bring to the table:

  1. Thorough Investigation: Our experienced and investigative team embarks on a meticulous examination right off the bat. They obtain the police report, which is common in serious truck accidents due to the heavy damage and injuries involved. Additionally, our resourceful staff collaborate with accident reconstruction experts to meticulously analyze and reconstruct the accident scene, scrutinize trucker logs, and any truck data or footage. If there are eyewitnesses, we’ll reach out to them to gather their accounts. To ensure all crucial information is preserved, we send official letters to the trucking company.
  2. Filing the Insurance Claim: Armed with all the necessary facts, our responsive and knowledgeable lawyers compile a comprehensive claim which is then submitted to any insurance companies that might cover the accident. They demand full compensation for your injuries and explain why the trucking company or truck driver should be held responsible. They’re thorough in documenting every detail and maintain a transparent communication line with you throughout this phase.
  3. Settlement Negotiations: Our lawyers are strategic and persuasive when engaging with insurance companies to negotiate a favorable settlement. Before diving into negotiations, they consult with you to understand your expectations and goals for your claim. Their client-centric, ethical approach ensures your needs are prioritized at every step.
  4. Filing a Lawsuit if needed: If a satisfactory settlement isn’t achievable, our resolute and adaptive lawyers are prepared to file a lawsuit against all potential at-fault parties. Even amidst the lawsuit, they persist in seeking chances for an out-of-court settlement. However, if a trial is inevitable, they are well-prepared to present all the evidence, advocate strongly on your behalf, and aim for a verdict that awards you the deserved compensation.

Throughout this journey, our reputable and professional team at the Reeves Law Group remains accessible, ready to consult with you, educate you on the legal landscape, and keep you well-informed.
