Camarillo truck collision injury victims often come out of accidents with an emotional shock combined with broken bones and bruises, sometimes resulting in wrongful death claims. A truck collision can magnify the extent of injuries that victims suffer in comparison to accidents between cars. This makes it imperative for truck drivers to be well trained in handling their trucks and understanding what to do under certain circumstances when conditions change on the road. Factors contributing to truck accidents include:
- Errors caused by truck drivers being careless and not checking blind spots for other vehicles
- Extreme weather, such as a hail storm, which blocks the truck driver's view of the road
- A car driver committing an error by making a lane switch right in front of a truck, without giving truck enough time to react and brake
Motorcyclists are often very hard to notice until you hear their motorcycle engine close by just as they pass you in between the lanes. Drivers must keep an eye out for motorcycles and make sure they do not carelessly switch lanes without double checking their side and rear view mirrors. Truck drivers would have an even harder time detecting motorcycles, especially truck drivers of commercial vehicles that already have a hard time seeing cars that are driving on the adjacent lanes. Motorcyclists have a tendency to drive past vehicles in between lanes, which means that truck drivers should try to be aware of the vehicles further behind them to spot the motorcycles way before they are driving close to the trucks. If truck and car drivers can expand their awareness beyond the vehicles nearby, many motorcycle injuries can be avoided, which would eliminate serious injuries and deaths, given the vulnerability of victims on a motorcycle.Camarillo Truck Accident Injury Facts
