Understanding the Scope of the Issue

According to data from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), rear-end truck collisions are alarmingly common on California's roads. In 2022 alone, the California Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) and Truck Info reported 168,320 truck accidents, with 4,766 of them resulting in one or more fatalities with the possibility of a wrongful death injury claim. Many of these rear end truck accidents not only result in significant property damage but also cause life-altering injuries and, in the worst cases, wrongful deaths.

Some of the Main Causes of Rear End Truck Injury Collisions

Rear-end collisions involving trucks in Los Angeles and California, like in many other places, can be influenced and caused by various factors including traffic density, road conditions, weather, and driver behavior. Here are some general causes of rear end truck accidents:

  1. Common Occurrence: Rear-end collisions involving trucks are relatively common on California roads due to the high volume of traffic, especially on freeways and highways.
  2. Contributing Factors: Factors such as distracted driving, including using a mobile cell telephone for calls and or texting, tailgating, speeding, sudden lane changes, and fatigue contribute to rear-end collisions involving trucks.
  3. Severity: Due to the size and weight disparity between trucks and smaller vehicles, and the great momentum of trucks (that is their larger weight times speed), rear-end collisions with trucks can result in more severe injuries and property damage compared to similar accidents involving only passenger vehicles that might not even cause any injury.
  4. Legislation and Safety Measures: California, like other states, has regulations and safety measures in place to prevent rear-end collisions involving trucks. These may include mandatory rest periods for truck drivers, speed limits, and regulations regarding following distance. When truck drivers do not follow these safety measures, such as by skipping mandatory rest periods, driving at excessive or unsafe speeds, following too closely, and or not properly maintaining their trucks (e.g., not checking and repairing brakes, excessive weight loads, etc.), rear end truck accidents occur.
  5. Technology and Safety Features: Advancements in vehicle safety technology, such as automatic emergency braking systems and collision avoidance systems, can help mitigate the risk of rear-end collisions involving trucks. When such safety technology is available, properly maintained and activated, rear end truck accidents may be avoided. So it’s extremely important to not only have these systems operating properly but to be certain they are activated at all times.

We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
