Many people believe that faulty brakes and poorly loaded cargo are the most frequent culprits in large truck crashes. While these factors are often cited as reasons for truck accidents, driver error appears to be one of the most common causes.

Driver error has to do with the behavior and actions of the trucker. For example, a trucker who has taken medication, whether prescription or over-the-counter, can become impaired. His or her reaction time may become sluggish, as the drug takes effect. Therefore, the ability to avoid a crash becomes more difficult.

Truckers have also been known to drive too fast for conditions. This may include speeding through foggy highways or traveling fast on wet roads.

If you have been hurt in a Southern California truck accident, you need to speak with an experienced Riverside truck accident attorney immediately. Certain evidence will need to be gathered and preserved to build a strong case on your behalf.
