Common Causes of Santa Clarita Truck Accidents
The I-5 and the 14 freeways running thru Santa Clarita mean that it is a major passageway for trucks carrying full loads. It also means that the chance of a truck accident in the area is high. Here’s a look at some of the common causes of Santa Clarita truck accidents:
- Inability to react: Trucks are extremely heavy and for that reason, their ability to react to a potential accident is pretty limited as they need significantly more space to stop than your average car.
- Driver error and exhaustion: Long hours on the road can make for very tired eyes and whether it is exhaustion or a different error, a truck drivers mistake can mean serious injuries or death for the other party to the accident.
- Blind Spot: Because of the size and construction of a truck, the number of blind spots a driver has is quite substantial. Turning into a car or motorcycle they can’t see or missing a car that recently changed lanes is a major cause of truck accidents.
- Mechanical issues: Trucks require a lot more maintenance and attention than a car or motorcycle does and when long trips resulted in missed maintenance or there is a defect within a truck part, the results can be devastating.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, you have legal options to get paid following the accident but you need to take action. Trucking companies have to carry large insurance policies to help cover injuries and deaths but they don’t give this money out without a fight. Some of the things you can get paid for include:
- All current and future medical bills
- Physical therapy needs
- Missed work
- Inability to work
- Disability needs
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional issues
- And more…
