Truck Accident vs. Motorcycle Accident

Truck Accident vs. Motorcycle Accident

Comparing a truck or big rig accident to a motorcycle accident can seem similar to comparing a car accident to a motorcycle accident. Both trucks and cars offer their drivers considerably more safety than motorcycles, so the insurance issues before an accident will be different. Likewise, the issues involved in and after an accident will be different between a truck accident and a motorcycle accident as well, especially when considering the relative safety a truck driver will have the advantage of in an accident. With this in mind, pursuing a lawsuit following your motorcycle accident can not be left to a personal injury attorney with experience in vehicular accident cases that do not include a history with motorcycle accident cases. If you or a loved one has been in a Los Angeles or Riverside motorcycle accident and are looking for the representation of a personal injury attorney with experience in motorcycle accident cases, contact the California Attorney Group today at (866) 650-0505.
Truck drivers sit high above the road, protected from road accidents by much more steel and material than a typical car or even most utility vehicles. The sheer weight and density of the material will help absorb the impact of a vehicular crash, where in a motorcycle accident, the motorcyclist will often be thrown from his or her vehicle. As such, truck drivers have a much lower risk of injury than other drivers, and therefore, a different set of issues when dealing with insurance. Much of their insurance may go to protecting their cargo from damage or theft rather than protecting their bodies from harm. And as truck drivers generally do not own their trucks, they are instead paid to transport goods, but are held responsible for the safety of the truck and it’s cargo.
But what makes the driver of a truck safe only helps to put others on the road at risk. The size and weight of a truck may keep the driver safe from injury, but that size and weight can be deadly to other drivers. Many motorcycle accident cases involving a big rig or large truck, regardless of whether you’re riding a Yamaha or a Ducati, often become wrongful death lawsuits, in which close family of the motorcyclists will pursue damages for the loss of a loved one. If you or a loved one has been in a motorcycle accident with a truck or big rig, the damage to the motorcycle and to its rider can be extensive. For premier legal representation contact the California Attorney Group today at (866) 650-0505.
The top-notch legal team at the California Attorney Group understands the variety of dangers that motorcyclists face when confronted with a large truck. And in the Southern California area especially, motorcyclists who use the freeways often ride near large trucks using the freeways of Los Angeles or Riverside as both shipping lanes and shipping destinations. The involvement of a large truck in a motorcycle accident is an almost guaranteed fatality for the motorcyclist just by the nature of the size and weight of a truck. And the danger is multiplied despite the added visibility that truck drivers have, sitting so high above the road – this danger is the blind spot of the truck, also called the “no-zone.”
Similar to the blind spot on almost any other vehicle, this area is larger because the truck is large, and more dangerous for much of the same reason. The truck driver is essentially blind to any small vehicle in this area. If the driver goes to change lanes, a motorcyclist can get caught between the truck and another vehicle, other obstacle, or perhaps the motorcyclist will simply be forced beneath the truck.
If you or a loved on has been involved in a motorcycle accident with a large truck or big rig, make sure that you are represented by an experienced and skilled motorcycle accident attorney. At the California Attorney Group, our past successful experience with motorcycle accident cases involving serious personal injury and wrongful death cases puts us in a place to better understand your interests and how to help you through a successful lawsuit or settlement.
