Poor Road Conditions trucks accidents attorneys in California

The Large Truck Crash Causation Study found that weather was the critical factor in 114 multivehicle truck accidents and 127 single-vehicle truck accidents. As it related to the other environmental factor, the highway was the critical factor in 950 multivehicle truck accidents and 599 single-vehicle truck accidents.

Truck drivers remain responsible for controlling their vehicle in inclement weather, but accidents that are caused by environmental factors relating to road conditions can be more complex. When a roadway defect or hazard causes an accident, a governmental entity could be liable.

Types of Poor Road Conditions Accidents

Every single truck accident is different and involves its own unique set of participants, actions, and other contributing factors. Certain kinds of crashes are more common than others, and some of the most frequent include, but are not limited to:

  • Jackknife Accidents
  • T-Bone Collisions
  • Head-On Collisions
  • Rear-End Collisions
  • Intersection Accidents
  • Wide-Turning Accidents
  • Override Accidents
  • Underride Accidents
  • Rollover Accidents

Keep in mind that whatever road conditions caused your accident are not likely to stay that way. For this reason, it is incredibly important for you to take as many pictures as possible of your entire accident scene.

If a roadway condition was the cause, get photographs of the hazard from as many angles and distances as possible. Even crashes caused by weather can be benefitted by pictures.
