Injuries from Victorville Trucking Accidents
Trucking accidents are fairly common on California highways. Over half the time they are due to mistakes made by the driver. Most trucking accidents are caused by:
- Jackknifing from equipment malfunction
- Rollover from excessive speed around corners or other reasons
- Under riding (when a vehicle goes under the truck)
- A tire blowout
- Improper braking
Injuries from trucking accidents are hardly ever minor. They typically include broken bones, head trauma, spinal injuries and other debilitating damage to the body. If it is determined that the trucker is responsible for the accident, you can receive compensation to cover medical costs, lost wages as well as pain and suffering. Punitive damages may also be awarded as additional punishment for negligent conduct.
