How Do Los Angeles Truck Accidents Happen?

Truck accidents in California are unfortunately common, and our experienced attorneys have identified several reasons:


  • Truck Driver Fatigue: Long hours on the road without breaks can lead to exhaustion, making accidents more likely.
  • Unsecured Loads: Cargo not properly secured can be hazardous, causing catastrophic accidents.
  • Braking Issues: Longer braking times due to heavy loads can result in rear-end accidents if drivers miscalculate stopping distances.
  • Improper Turning: Inadequate space or failure to check blind spots can lead to sideswipe accidents.
  • Speeding: Trying to meet tight deadlines, some truck drivers may speed, leading to unsafe conditions and accidents.
  • Distracted Driving: Lack of attention on long drives can result in accidents.
  • Poor Truck Maintenance: Neglected maintenance can make a commercial vehicle unsafe, leading to accidents.
