Common Truck Accident Injuries
Due to their large size and weight, a truck accident which might seem minor are far more likely to cause death or serious injury than those involving smaller vehicles like cars or motorcycles.
Injuries sustained in truck accidents are often severe enough to prevent the victim from ever working again, putting their family in a difficult financial position. Loss of work time due to medical appointments, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and other treatment for injuries sustained in a truck accident is probable if the injuries are severe enough.

Who Is Liable for a Los Angeles Truck Accident?
Wondering who is liable after a Los Angeles truck accident is a common question accident victims have when filing a personal injury claim. Often, the trucking company can be held liable for accidents. Not only can the company be held liable, but the truck driver may be liable as well due to any reckless or negligent actions that may have contributed to the truck accident.
Both the trucking company and the driver owe everyone else on the road a duty of care that they will not act negligently. When this does not happen, accidents occur.
Common negligent behaviors that make truck companies and drivers liable for truck accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Impaired driving
- Fatigued driving
- Reckless driving
- Defective and dangerous truck parts
- Poor truck maintenance and lack of inspections
- Companies failing to adhere to standards and rules established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
- Poor training and hiring practices
