Sherman Oaks truck collision injury victims can suffer agonizing, stressful experiences as well as sustain fractures and nerve damage, sometimes resulting in wrongful death claims. In order to prevent truck crashes and protect people on the road, truck drivers should do their part by following their company's proper procedures that require examinations of the trucks before going on duty and making sure that as truck drivers, they are in the right mind to drive. Factors contributing to truck accidents include:
- Driving through storms at night, making visibility extremely limited
- Truck driver being careless by not paying attention to vertical clearance height for bridge and attempting to pass through
- Car or truck having a mechanical defect on the road that causes an accident
This is one of the essential requirements that needs to be met before getting into a vehicle to drive, regardless of whether a person has years of experience or if they recently obtained their license. Lacking sleep makes a driver's reactions slower on the road, so that if an emergency situation comes up, the driver would not be able to use good judgment in a quick manner to avoid an accident. Even having a couple hours of less sleep than normal can alter a person's focus on the road without the person realizing. This is very dangerous, but many people put themselves in this position every day. Truck drivers, especially those working for companies, are a group of drivers that have a responsibility to themselves and others to get an adequate amount of sleep every day, because they drive trucks on a daily basis and for long periods. If every driver is well rested before going on the road, accident rates will be significantly lower in the future.Sherman Oaks Truck Accident Injury Facts
A serious injury from a truck collision is a pelvic fracture. The most significant pelvic fractures, which include any damage to the hip bone, sacrum or coccyx, are the result of a high-energy force that usually occurs during a motor vehicle accident. Pelvic fractures may lead to a large amount of internal bleeding, with emergency treatment being required through advanced trauma life support management. After the pelvis is stabilized, it may also have to be surgically reconstructed. Please contact us now, including for referrals to doctors who may provide treatment without a request for payment until the claim is resolved, if you or a loved one sustained a pelvic fracture injury from any truck collision or other personal injury accident in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles or anywhere in California.Experience You Can Depend on in Truck and Car Accident Injury Claims
