Defending Those Injured In Trucking Accidents

When a large commercial truck collides with a small vehicle such as a car or motorcycle, someone will likely sustain significant injuries. The sheer weight of a tractor-trailer ensures that one or both of the motor vehicle operators will leave the accident scene in an ambulance. At The Law Offices of Christian J. Amendt, we have seen this scenario play out on California highways time and again.

Protecting Your Rights

While the truck driver may be seriously hurt, the car’s driver will likely suffer catastrophic injuries. Those injuries can take the form of:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries/peripheral nerve injuries
  • Post-concussion injuries
  • Bone fractures/joint damage
  • Skin lacerations
  • Blood vessel damage

Laws And Negligence

Strict federal regulations govern the activities of truck drivers throughout the nation. They must adhere to rules regarding work breaks, load weights and stability. However, when pressured by their superiors to “make time,” operators will break traffic laws, forego sleep and operate an overloaded truck. These efforts can all cause accidents and injure innocent drivers.

In addition to following regulations, truck drivers must routinely inspect their vehicles and ensure any necessary repairs are made immediately. The safety of the driver and others sharing the road is at stake.
