Santa Maria Truck Accident Attorney

Financial hardship is an unfortunate outcome of most truck accidents. Injured victims are left feeling frustrated and discouraged because they are unable to work and earn a living for themselves and their families. Injuries sustained during accidents involving big rigs, tractor-trailers, and large commercial trucks can be devastating, to say the least. Adding insult to injury, insurance carriers do their best to settle with injured parties for far less than the true amount of their damages.

Fortunately, our truck accident attorneys are on standby, ready to serve truck accident victims and help them recover the compensation to which they are entitled. At the Law Offices of John B. Richards, our team has the resources needed to go toe-to-toe with big insurance companies, maximizing the settlements or verdicts we secure on behalf of our clients.

Truck Accident Causes

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among young adults and children, as of 2021. Around the world, 1.3 million people die in accidents on the road every year.

Some top causes of accidents, including truck accidents, are:

  • Speeding: According to the WHO, for every 1 percent increase in speed, there is a 4 percent increase in the risk of a fatal crash and a 3 percent increase in the risk of a serious crash.
  • Driving while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol: The risk of being involved in a crash goes up significantly with a driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level. It also goes up with drug use. For instance, the WHO notes that people driving under the influence of amphetamines are around five times as likely to wreck.
  • Distracted driving: Texting or talking on a mobile phone, for example, makes drivers up to four times as likely to crash, as it slows down reaction times on the roadway.
