Truck drivers need to go through extensive training to limit the chances of a truck accident with the catastrophic injuries that result from large, heavy trucks colliding with much smaller cars and even motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians. Trucks must be carefully maintained and closely inspected before being driven and their truck drivers must have proper training and licenses with adequate sleep and rest before using their trucks in order to know how to operate them improperly, especially in rain, ice and other poor weather conditions, not get distracted, lose attention or even fall asleep while driving. Factors instrumental in causing truck accidents include the following:
- Truck's tire exploding on the road causing it to swerve and collide with other trucks and cars
- Truck driver inattention, due to fatigue or texting while driving
- Faulty truck maintenance and inspection, especially with brake systems
- Heavy rain, especially at night, and fog making it difficult to see much smaller cars, motorcycles and other vehicles
- Truck driver being careless while passing under a low bridge with a truck that cannot make the clearance due to its height
One should never drive any vehicle with any intoxicating substance in one’s system, such as alcohol or debilitating drugs. Such drugs are not just the well known unlawful drugs like cocaine, but also legal, prescription drugs with unwanted side effects. This is because many people do not know what is in certain prescription medicines or even in non prescribed pills like sleeping aids or generic forms of Tylenol or Motrin. There could be ingredients, especially when combined with other drugs or beverages, which alter motor skills or make an individual drowsy without them realizing such effects are taking place. Even medicine that is specified as a day time drug can affect a person's driving ability and/or judgment. A person that intends to drive their truck or car within a few hours after taking any medication should also be aware that, depending on the person's body weight and how much food was in the body, a medicine can vary in how many minutes to hours it needs to take effect and the effects is has on the driver. Therefore, one must pay very close attention to one’s own body and not risk driving when recently taking any drug, other medication or alcoholic beverage.Injuries From Truck Collisions
Victims of truck collisions can suffer many different types of injuries, from bruises to neck and low back sprains to bone fractures, brain injury or damaged organs. One painful type of injury that occurs in violent truck accidents is an ankle fracture. The ankle can suffer a slight fracture with minimal difficulty or the fracture might be much more serious from a truck accident that cause multiple bones to be broken, leading to an ankle to go out of place and require immobilization, special boots and braces for several months, including potential surgery. Please contact us now if you or anyone you know suffered an ankle fracture or any fracture from any truck accident or other personal injury accident in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles or anywhere in California, including for referrals to orthopedic specialists who specialize in ankle and foot injuries who may provide specialized medical care and treatment without requesting payment until the claim is resolved.Experience You Can Trust and Rely Upon in Truck and Car Accident Injury Claims in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, Calif.
