California roads are awash with semi-trucks, big rigs, and other large commercial vehicles, and with very good reason. Without these vehicles transporting raw materials, components, and finished products around the nation, the United States economy as we know would not exist. The sheer size of these trucks enables them to carry all manner of essential goods around the country, but also comes with some potentially serious downsides, such as the havoc which can be wrecked by a truck accident. Our Inglewood truck accident attorneys have extensive experience of successfully representing those who have been injured in serious collisions, learning first-hand just how destructive trucks can be. If you have been injured in a truck accident, a personal injury attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg can provide the legal expertise you need whilst securing maximum compensation.

The Statistics of Inglewood Truck Accidents

With our extensive experience of handling cases arising from Inglewood truck accidents, one of the facts which stands out is that, once you are traveling over 40 miles per hour, a truck is virtually indestructible. Quite a sobering thought when you consider the average speed you are likely to maintain while driving alongside commercial vehicles on the highway or freeway. As you are sure to be aware, you and your car are most certainly not indestructible.

Did you know?

  • Many truck accidents in California, and beyond, are caused by truck drivers breaching the maximum allowable driving hours. While unscrupulous trucking companies continue to incentivize their drivers for delivering ahead of schedule, this risk will remain
  • Some other common contributing factors include driving too fast for current road and weather conditions, checking Qualcomm for work information, adjusting GPS systems, or using a cellphone

According to statistics published by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA):

  • In 2016, 4,213 large trucks were involved in fatal collisions
  • 55,633 trucks were involved in accidents causing non-fatal injuries
  • 99,911 tow-away accidents occurred
  • 73% of fatal truck accidents were significantly contributed to by a person, vehicle, or animal encroaching on the lane in which the truck was traveling
  • 5% of fatal truck accidents were caused by issues with the vehicle itself

Whatever caused the Inglewood truck accident you sustained serious injuries in, or lost a loved one to, an experienced attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg can ensure you receive the maximum compensation and monetary damages available.
