The sheer size and weight of a commercial truck is no match for a passenger vehicle in a San Diego accident. Therefore, a truck accident in San Diego can easily lead to serious or fatal injuries.
Causes of a San Diego Truck Accident
Some of the common causes of a San Diego accident involving a truck include:
- lack of inspections (cargo should be inspected before, during and after a route);
- aggressive driving (tailgating, changing lanes, speeding);
- cargo problems (cargo should not be imbalanced, overweight or improperly secured);
- fatigue (truckers must obey laws that limit their time on the road); and
- driving in bad conditions (truckers are obligated to get off the road if conditions are slippery or if visibility is reduced).
If you or a loved one has suffered a San Diego injury in a truck accident, you should speak with a San Diego accident lawyer before you speak with any insurance adjusters. Your lawyer will help determine which parties can be held accountable for your San Diego injury, including the truck driver, truck manufacturer and trucking company.
