Hidden Hills truck accident injury victims can end up with injuries that could alter their quality of life, sometimes resulting in wrongful death claims. Trucks must be carefully examined to determine if there are problems with any parts, and the drivers should take the time to go through their cargo and see if any items need to be adjusted to avoid an imbalance that could cause a tilting of the truck in an emergency situation. Factors contributing to truck accidents include:
- Car drivers being reckless and cutting off a truck on a crowded street or freeway, causing the truck to swerve or slam into the car that abruptly came in front of it
- Truck drivers not getting sufficient sleep, causing them to doze off on the road
- Brake failure from truck while at higher speeds
The brakes are one of the most important parts of a vehicle, saving lives every day and helping drivers avoid close calls with others. So it makes sense that the brakes should be checked after a certain amount of time to ensure they continue working properly. When a vehicle's brakes start squeaking, that could mean that it is not stopping the vehicle fast enough and that the brakes need to be changed. For truck drivers, the brakes are very important because trucks are heavier vehicles and take more time to stop, so weaker brakes could make it almost impossible to avoid an accident. For example, if the truck driver is at higher speeds and there is a sudden halt on the road or some other driver carelessly gets in front of the truck without acknowledging the small gap of space the truck driver has to brake, an accident will result and cause serious injuries. Therefore, truck drivers must be sure that their brakes are working efficiently to effectively slow down the truck when necessary.Truck Accident Injury Information for Hidden Hills
One injury that victims of truck accidents suffer is a concussion. A concussion leads to a temporary loss of brain function and is the most common form of a brain injury. Adults frequently end up with concussions from car accidents. The concussion can cause dizziness, vomiting, difficulty balancing, nausea, headache, blurred or double vision, sensitivity to bright lights and at times even post-traumatic seizures. To help reduce symptoms, the injured victim needs to have physical and cognitive rest.
