Logging trucks accidents attorneys in California

A logging truck is a large truck that usually has two or more trailers attached known as a road train or a land train. Logging trucks can often extend for several feet, and this excess length makes the trucks extremely difficult to operate in traditional traffic settings.

Drivers of logging trucks often work long hours that are strictly regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). California Code of Regulations § 6335 also places requirements on logging trucks and trailers.

Causes of Logging Truck Accidents

Logging truck crashes can stem from a variety of causes. In many cases, the accidents are wide-turning accidents in which a driver failed to account for the vehicles around them while attempting to turn.

Other accidents can stem from more egregious forms of negligence, such as speeding or reckless driving. In some cases, a driver simply may not have been properly or adequately trained, which could make the employer liable.

A truck owner could also be liable for any failure to maintain their vehicle. An accident caused by a defective truck part could make that part manufacturer liable.

A driver may have been driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol, or they could have been fatigued if they were in violation of federal hours limits. Some drivers could have also been distracted by cell phones.

Some accidents may stem from unsecured loads. Others could have been caused by inclement weather, but the truck driver is still responsible for operating responsibly in such conditions.

The May Firm will investigate your crash and determine the specific cause. We will then identify all of the liable parties and take all of the steps necessary to help you get justice.

Types of Logging Truck Accident Injuries

The immense size of logging trucks often makes the nature of the injuries people suffer quite severe. Some cases will result in fatal injuries.

The family of a person killed in a logging truck accident can file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages relating to the financial hardships created by an individual’s death. People who have survived can also recover damages relating to the injuries they sustained.

Examples of injuries people could suffer in logging truck accidents include, but are not limited to:

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

You will likely be facing a number of financial concerns when you are involved in a logging truck accident, but do not let an insurance company take advantage of your desperation. Rest assured, they will almost certainly try.

An insurance company will usually offer a logging truck accident victim a lump sum settlement that can sound quite reasonable to some people, but the amount is almost never anywhere near what the victim is actually entitled to. The risk you take in accepting this settlement offer is that you are powerless to obtain any additional compensation if you still require medical care after the settlement is exhausted.

The May Firm will negotiate for a fair and full settlement to your case that covers every single possible need of yours. We will not be afraid file a lawsuit when an insurance company refuses to compensate you fairly.
