Improper Reversing accidents attorneys in California

Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) § 383.111 establishes that all commercial truck drivers must have knowledge of 20 general areas, one of which is backing in a straight line under CFR § 383.111(a)(4) and procedures and rules for various backing maneuvers, including backing principles and rules, and basic backing maneuvers, straight-line backing, and backing on a curved path under CFR § 383.111(a)(6). The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported in Large Truck and Bus Crash Facts 2017 that 25 fatal commercial truck crashes in 2017 stemmed from improper backing.

Backing is extremely dangerous for many commercial truck drivers because they have significant blind spots on all four side of their vehicles. Even when a truck is being backed in a straight line, another vehicle that is positioned in one of these blind spots could be involved in a serious collision.

Types of Improper Reversing Truck Accidents

The reasons that improper backing accidents occur is usually related to some kind of driver negligence. Some of the possible kinds of driver negligence that could cause these accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Inattention
  • Inadequate space
  • Inadequate time
  • Lack of training
  • Failure to adjust to conditions
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol

It is also possible that an improper reversing accident could have something to do with a mechanical issue in the commercial truck. In such cases, it is not the driver who is negligent so much as possible the manufacturer of a truck part or a maintenance company responsible for caring for the truck.

One of the primary reasons that any truck accident can be more complicated than a traditional passenger vehicle claim is that multiple parties can be and often are liable. You are going to want to be sure you are working with a skilled lawyer who can make sure every single negligent party is held accountable.

Types of Improper Reversing Truck Accident Injuries

When a commercial truck driver improperly reverses their vehicle, the result not only might involve striking another motor vehicle, but actually crushing it in some cases. The level of injuries in these cases can often be catastrophic, and possibly even fatal.

When a person is killed in a truck accident caused by improper reversing, then the family can file a wrongful death lawsuit. When people survive their injuries, they can file personal injury actions against the negligent parties.

Some of the most common kinds of injuries in these cases can include, but are not limited to:

  • Sprains
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Fractures
  • Paralysis
  • Lacerations
  • Burn injuries

You will want to be extremely cautious in what you say and do after your accident. Try not to post anything about your crash or your injuries on social media websites.

You should generally avoid speaking to an insurance company without legal representation. Never provide any recorded statement to a claims adjuster for an insurer.
