Truck Accident Statistics in California

In 2019, California held second on the list of states with the highest fatal truck accident rates, as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reported. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) estimates that 83 percent of fatal accident victims include passengers, motorcyclists, big rig drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), nearly 6,000 deaths and 155,000 injuries resulted from large truck accidents on American roads in 2021. The NSC defines large trucks as commercial and noncommercial vehicles weighing over 10,000 pounds.

List of Common Injuries Sustained in Truck Accidents

As a result of a truck accident, you are more likely to suffer further injuries than in a car accident. Some of the most common injuries you might experience are:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries
    The force of an impact can cause serious injuries to the spinal cord when it is compacted, stretched, or impacted. Following a spinal cord injury, some victims may experience sensory loss and movement in certain areas of their bodies. In extreme cases, the victim may suffer complete paralysis.
  • Head Injuries
    In a truck accident, occupants can hit their heads against the steering wheel, windows or dashboard. It is possible to suffer mild, moderate, or severe brain injuries as a result of traumatic brain injuries. These injuries can result in pain and other symptoms that may affect a person’s quality of life for years.
  • Abdominal Trauma
    An abdominal injury can range from minor to severe injuries such as organ damage or internal bleeding. In truck accidents, abdominal injuries often require immediate medical attention for diagnosis and treatment.
  • Fractures
    In a truck accident, victims often suffer broken or fractured bones as a result of the force of the impact. Broken bones commonly occur in the legs, arms, or chest of victims.

When facing common injuries resulting from truck accidents, hiring one of Arash Law’s Ontario truck accident lawyers becomes essential. With a commitment to securing the compensation you rightfully deserve, our team’s experience becomes a valuable asset in navigating the legal process and achieving the best possible outcome for your injuries.

What Is The Time Limit for Filing A Lawsuit After A Truck Accident?

Truck accident victims in Ontario must be aware of California’s time limit for filing personal injury lawsuits. First, consider informing your personal insurance provider and the trucking company’s insurance within a day or two, especially if strict reporting deadlines apply. Neglecting this step could result in unnecessary delays or denials of your claim.

In the event that a personal injury lawsuit becomes necessary against the at-fault party or trucking company, there is a limited timeframe to act. The personal injury statute of limitations in California spans two years from the date of the injury occurrence. Consequently, victims have a two-year window to initiate a lawsuit against the negligent party.

Important Steps To Take After An Ontario Truck Accident

After a severe truck accident, navigating the immediate aftermath can be daunting. Taking the right steps following injuries in a collision with a commercial truck is pivotal in safeguarding your chances of receiving fair compensation. Arash Law’s seasoned truck accident attorneys have crafted this guide to assist you in knowing what to do after experiencing injuries in such an accident.

  1. Get medical help – After a truck accident, seek prompt medical attention for possible hidden injuries, ensure accurate diagnoses and early treatment to prevent worsening conditions, and establish a crucial link between your injuries and the accident.
  2. Call 911 – Dial 911 for assistance, prompting the arrival of police and first responders at the accident scene. Provide the police with your account of the moments leading up to the collision, and ensure you obtain a copy of the police report. Although typically inadmissible in court, these reports hold essential information useful for the investigation of your collision.
  3. Collect evidence at the accident scene – Gathering evidence from the accident scene is vital for establishing what occurred. Collecting evidence on-site can provide important details and prevent potential falsification or alteration. Capture photos of vehicle damage, tire skid marks, license plates, and other pertinent details.
  4. Exchange information with the other involved parties – It’s mandatory to exchange insurance and contact details with the other driver after an accident. Request the truck driver’s name, insurance details, address, trucking carrier’s name, and truck number.
  5. Ask witnesses for their contact information – If there were witnesses to your truck collision, request them to remain and provide statements to the police. Gather their names and contact information for your attorney to follow up. Witness testimony serves as valuable and unbiased evidence in a truck accident claim, offering firsthand accounts of the incident.
  6. File an insurance claim – Seeking assistance from an experienced Ontario truck accident attorney is advisable when filing an insurance claim. The guidance of an attorney can significantly impact the outcome of your claim. If the insurance company doesn’t provide a fair settlement, you and your attorney can assess whether to continue negotiations, accept the offer, or pursue legal action.
  7. Talk to our Ontario truck accident lawyer – After a truck accident, speaking to a lawyer is important for victims to understand the legal process. At Arash Law, we know you’re going through a difficult time and want to make things easy for you. We offer a free consultation to discuss your case and address any questions you may have.
