Santa Ana Truck Crash Lawyer

Those massive semi-trucks and big rigs you frequently see on the road network around Santa Ana are, essentially, an essential component of the United States economy. Without these vehicles transporting raw materials, components, and finished products around the nation, many of our businesses simply could not function. Important as these commercial vehicles are, the sheer size and weight of them means that any collision with other motor vehicles, cyclists, or pedestrians is highly unlikely to end well. While the occupants of the larger vehicle have a higher likelihood of escaping without serious injury, our Santa Ana truck accident attorneys have extensive experience in successfully representing those who have been injured in such incidents. When you or a loved one have been seriously impacted by a collision, the legal experts from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg can provide the legal expertise you need whilst pursuing maximum compensation.

What You Should Know About California Truck Accidents

Over the years we have been working as Santa Ana truck accident attorneys, one of the facts which constantly stands out to us is that, once you are traveling over 40 miles per hour, a truck is virtually indestructible. That is a scary statistic when you consider the average speed at which you are likely to drive along the highway or freeway. You and your car, on the other hand, are most certainly not indestructible. Some other facts about trucking and related accidents include:

  • Many truck accidents in California, and beyond, are caused by truck drivers breaching the maximum allowable driving hours. When mileage is the moneymaker, this temptation will always be present
  • Some other common contributing factors include driving at an excessive speed for current road and weather conditions, checking Qualcomm or GPS systems, or using a cellphone for any purpose, most often texting

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 circumstances surround the truck accident you were injured in or lost a loved one to, an experienced truck collision lawyer from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg can ensure you recover the compensation and monetary damages you are entitled to.
