Why are Truck Crashes So Serious?
There are a lot of serious traffic accidents on our roadways, but when it comes to sheer danger, truck accidents beat all the others a considerable margin. The immense size and weight of trucks ensures that the impact of truck accidents tends to be life-threatening and that the occupants of the other vehicles involved are at far greater risk. If you or someone you love has been injured by a truck driver’s negligence, make the call to an experienced Beverly Hills truck accident attorney today.
The Semi’s Size
The massive size of the semis with which we share our roads leads to all the following risk factors:
- Truck drivers experience significant blind spots across both sides and the front and back of their rigs. When motorists find themselves in these danger zones, they are at significantly increased risk of being injured by distracted or otherwise careless truck drivers.
- Tractor-trailers require a good deal more space on the road to slow down and come safely to complete stops.
- ● Truck beds and cabs are coupled together by massive hinges that allow them to move in articulated tandem. This coupling device, however, also accommodates dangerous jackknife accidents when truckers fail to proceed with the necessary caution when taking tight curves or exits or when maneuvering roads made slippery by bad weather.
These are only some of the many reasons why truck accidents can cause such serious injuries.
