What Causes Most Semi-Truck Accidents?

In San Diego, there are many freight and distribution trucks that have been known to transport most of Californias food supplies.

As attorneys, we have gathered as much data and case studies that have a specific correlation between trucking accidents and the cause of them. This information has been pulled from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

  • Driver Fatigue: Truck drivers are more likely to crash while on the road if they have driven more than 6 hours without taking a break/rest stop.
  • Bad Drivers: Many truck accidents are caused due to cars switching between lanes, forcing the diesel to slam on the breaks in order to stop. While this works for smaller cars, the weight of a diesel prevents a fast stop, ultimately causing a crash or pileup.
  • Weather Conditions: These have been known to cause serious trucking accidents such as black ice, wet roads or large items on the road that have been dropped from another vehicle.
  • Texting or Distracted Driving: We have seen it throughout our roads for years and as the years pass, it is only getting worse. Distractions with Siri, Facebook messaging, Texting, Snapchatting and more.

Our San Diego Personal Injury Lawyers can help you if you have been injured in an accident due to a truck/diesel causing the accident or if you are the truck driver and need representation.

As a regular driver on the road, you must remember that the sheer weight of a diesel is at a minimum 10 times heavier than your ford, focus, fiat or any other car you can possibly drive.

But when it rains, it pours. Due to the sheer size of the truck, any small bump can cause serious damage to both your vehicle and bodily injuries. When in court we will use this to benefit your claim.

Was the truck traveling at safe speeds? Did the driver abide by all safety precautions during his route? One useful tactic that our firm uses to provide you with the highest quality of representation and defense is a common question. That question is “What was the due date for the delivery?” If the driver only had 1 day to make it to the destination, but the expected drive was still 2 days, then this driver was clearly running late.

As your representation, we can guarantee our dedication to your case as if it was our own family member involved in the accident. Call us today at (858)314-3652 to schedule your free consultation.

Common Injuries After A Temecula Truck Accident

Why It Is Important To Contact Us Immediately

You might expect to see your Uber driver exchanging insurance info with the other driver, but the type of insurance will depend on what mode their phone was in at the time of the accident.

The Uber accident policy will only cover an incident if the driver’s Uber Partner app was turned on and in driver mode when the collision occurred.

If it wasn’t, then the driver will need rideshare insurance or perhaps even a commercial auto policy.

Exceptions apply if the accident took place in a state like California, as California law requires companies like Uber to cover drivers during what’s known as Period 1. Period 1 refers to the time when the driver is logged into the app but hasn’t booked or picked up a passenger.

California considers Uber a transportation network company or TNC. That means they must provide primary third-party liability insurance during Period I. That type of insurance covers injury, death, and property damage to third parties.

And yes, a passenger is considered a third party.

What Happens To The Truck Driver After An Accident?

First of all, Uber will deactivate them as a driver. That’s likely to happen even if the collision wasn’t the Uber driver’s fault.

Uber needs time to investigate an accident, and they don’t want the driver picking up passengers while that investigation is ongoing. If the car is damaged, it will need to undergo another safety inspection before being cleared for a return to the roadways.

Rideshare drivers tend to operate on thin margins anyway, so an accident can really make it hard to pay the bills. That’s another reason why it’s important for Uber drivers to have personal rideshare insurance or the equivalent.

Not all drivers do, though. Some drivers figure that their insurance company will just jack up their rates if they tell the truth, so they never admit to being an Uber driver.

The truth has a way of coming out, though, and when it does, the Uber driver’s personal insurance company may refuse to cover them at all.

It should go without saying, but don’t even think about lying on behalf of an Uber driver. You have enough to worry about already; you don’t need possible fraud charges on top of everything else.
