Truck Accidents: We Seek Justice For Victims
If you have been injured in a collision caused by a large truck, The Law Office of Troy P. Owens, Jr., can help. Our Chula Vista truck accident attorney has years of experience achieving successful outcomes on behalf of injured victims in Chula Vista and throughout San Diego County.
Common Causes Of Truck Crashes
A lot of effort goes into keeping our roadways safe. One important element is the restrictions placed on truckers and their employers. Prior to obtaining a commercial driver’s license (CDL), a truck driver must go through extensive training and pass written and practical tests. Trucking companies also have their share of responsibility to follow the safety regulations of the state of California.
Regardless of how many laws and standards are implemented, sometimes drivers and trucking companies violate these rules. When this occurs, it puts everyone on the road at risk of the dangers of an accident caused by an 18-wheeler.
Causes Of Truck Accidents
There are several factors that can lead to a truck collision, including:
- Distracted driving
- Defective equipment
- Poor truck maintenance
- Illegal lane changes
- Drowsy driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks
Such irresponsible, negligent actions can lead to devastating consequences for car drivers, bikers and cyclists. Sadly, trucking companies rarely own up to their responsibility, and their insurance companies often refuse to pay what they owe to victims. That is where our legal team steps in to protect our clients’ interests.
