California has the highest number of fatal truck accidents of almost any state

In comparison to practically every other state in California, California has more fatal truck accidents, with an average of 113 each year. Texas is the only state with more deadly truck accidents. In California, around 3,000 truck accidents occur each year, the majority of which occur on highways. Los Angeles County has more traffic accidents than other counties in the state.

The most common causes

The larger the truck, the greater the stopping distance required and the greater the likelihood of blind sports. These are two of the most common reasons for truck accidents. Driver weariness, passenger vehicle negligence, reckless driving, inappropriate lane switching, not having enough time to stop or turn, driving while drunk or otherwise impaired, and failure to observe other motor vehicle laws are also common reasons.

What to do in the event of a truck accident

We urge seeking medical assistance as soon as possible if you are involved in a truck accident in California. Gather as much evidence as possible, including photos, videos, and anything else that might be pertinent. Gather insurance information and contact information from all parties involved, as well as a statement from any witnesses.

You should contact your insurance provider to inform them of the situation, but only provide them with the facts. Make no official statements or allow them to record anything until you have sought legal advice. Even if you are confident that you are not at fault and that there is ample evidence to support your position, you may unintentionally contradict yourself, which can be used against you.

If you have been hurt, make sure you follow all medical recommendations and show up for all medical appointments. If you fail to do so, the opposing party may claim that you were not seriously injured.
