Since trucks are the largest vehicles on the roadways, they often lead to the most catastrophic accidents. Many Southern California truck accidents are preventable, since many of these crashes are caused by errors made by truck drivers.

There are many types of errors made by truckers, including:

  • Impaired driving
  • Violating hours of service
  • Driving fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Distractions

Proving Your Southern California Truck Accident Case

No matter the type of error committed, the success of your case will depend on your ability to prove that your truck accident was the result of a trucker error. Your attorney will have to investigate the conduct of the driver and the role, if any, that the trucking company played in the accident.

A copy of the truck driver’s log may be needed to determine if any hours of service rules were violated. Also, it will need to determined if any electronic event data recorders were installed in the truck.

These devices record information about the truck and its operation. The devices will let you know crucial information, such as how fast the truck was going, speed patterns and if the trucker used the brakes.

Gathering this information can be long and tedious. An experienced Riverside truck accident attorney can help you gather your evidence and prove your case.
