Orange County roads are full of careful as well as negligent drivers. Some of the negligent drivers happen to be truck drivers, who have caused car crashes in Mission Viejo and throughout O.C. Although not all truck drivers are negligent, there are some who take part in irresponsible behaviors, such as:
- Aggressive driving;
- Distracted driving;
- Drowsy driving;
- Driving drunk or under the influence of drugs or medicine;
- Inattentive driving;
- And other negligent behaviors.
Although some Orange County car crashes that involve semi-trucks occur because of bad timing, driving in blind spots, bad road conditions, or objects in the road, there are many car and truck crashes that are caused by a negligent truck driver’s actions.
If a truck driver is drowsy or drunk, he may drive head-on into oncoming traffic, veer into another lane, run red lights, and cause a wide range of car crashes due to his negligent and inattentive driving.
When negligent truck drivers get behind the wheel, they should be held liable for any damages and injuries that other innocent motorists incur. Generally, truck crashes lead to debilitating injuries for drivers and passengers in the other vehicles. Severe injuries can include internal injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, serious back and neck injuries, paralysis, and even death.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an Orange County truck crash because of a negligent truck driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation for lost wages, medical bills, physical therapy, loss of the ability to enjoy life, and more.
