Truck Accident Attorney Oceanside

Most passenger vehicles only weigh a few thousand pounds, but they are well built. Most vehicles are thoroughly tested so they are as safe as possible in case of an accident. Commercial trucks weigh tens of thousands of pounds and, when they strike a regular passenger vehicle, can have devastating consequences to the passengers.

While we hope you never experience a collision with a large commercial truck, if you do, you will need an Oceanside truck accident attorney. You can be sure that Edward “Skip” Babbitt is the experienced attorney you need fighting on your side.

So Many Trucks

There are many large trucks on the road but we really don’t pay much attention to them unless we find ourselves driving right next to one. Then, we just want to stay well behind it or pass it. These trucks perform valuable functions for our society, from delivering goods across the country to helping with major construction projects in our communities.

If we look at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, we see that most injuries and deaths from crashed involving large trucks occur in the people in the passenger vehicles they hit. The trucks weigh 20-30 times more than most passenger cars and are much larger, making any crash a potential deadly situation. The latest data year shows us that almost 4,000 people we killed and many thousand more injured in crashed with large trucks.

Why Do Trucks Crash

There are many reasons large trucks crash, but one of the main reasons deals with drivers who driver more than the allotted hours they are supposed to in a day. Studies have shown that, despite strict government regulations, drivers often violate the rules. This can lead to exhaustion and slower reaction times. It can also mean disaster for other vehicles on the roadway.

While most drivers are safe, there have been occurrences of drivers driving under the influence of alcohol or driving while distracted by their phones. This negligence can lead to serious injury or death.

Companies that operate large commercial trucks are supposed to ensure the trucks are inspected and maintained regularly. If they don’t perform periodic maintenance, part of the truck can fail. Whether it is the brakes, drivetrain, or other part of the truck, these malfunctions can cause dangerous situations on a busy roadway.

What To Do

In a collision with a large truck, you can become seriously injured. This could lead to extensive hospital bills and possibly a long recovery. If you have to miss work and lose income, your livelihood could be in jeopardy.

If you are in a truck accident, you will have many questions, and Edward “Skip” Babbitt wants to help you find answers.
