Intersection truck accident attorneys in California

California Vehicle Code § 21800(a) states that a driver approaching an intersection must yield the right-of-way to any vehicle that has entered the intersection from a different highway, and the driver of the vehicle on the left must yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on their immediate right when two vehicles enter an intersection from different highways at the same time (although a driver on a terminating highway has to yield the right-of-way to any vehicle on the intersecting continuing highway). The California Department of Motor Vehicles recommends that drivers turning left give the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching and also look for motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians, while drivers turning right should also check for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Many intersections in California can be extremely crowded scenes with multiple vehicles and many pedestrians, bicyclists, and other possible elements. When one driver is negligent in the operation in an intersection, it can easily cause a crash that involves several vehicles.

Causes of Intersection Truck Accidents

Truck accidents in intersections could stem from many different kinds of driver negligence. Some cases could also involve possible mechanical issues with the truck.

Among the possible causes, some of most common include, but are not limited to:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Tailgating
  • Inadequate observation
  • Mechanical defects
  • Inclement weather
  • Brake failure
  • Driver fatigue
  • Other traffic violations

It is also possible that an intersection accident could be the result of poor intersection design. A local governmental may not have provided proper signage to warn motorists about possible dangers.

Many truck crashes at intersections can be incredibly complex, but the May Firm can independently investigate your accident and determine the cause as well as all liable parties. Our firm will work with accident reconstruction specialists when necessary to get answers.

Types of Intersection Truck Accident Injuries

Injures in intersection crashes can vary depending on multiple factors, such as the speeds of the vehicles involved, the points of impact, and where people were seated. Some of the most common kinds of injuries generally include, but are not limited to:

  • Paralysis
  • Fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Lacerations

Some intersection accidents involving commercial trucks can result in fatal injuries. The families of people killed in such accidents can file wrongful death lawsuits to recover damages from the negligent party or parties.

The insurance company for the commercial truck usually takes one of two paths in its handling of your case. The insurer may quickly look for ways to pin a majority of the blame on you for the accident, and this is often accomplished through unknowing admissions of negligence during recorded statements—which is exactly why you should never agree to provide such a statement without an attorney present.
