Distracted Driving accidents attorneys in California

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that distracted driving caused 3,166 fatalities in 2017 alone. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rules prohibit commercial truck drivers from holding a cell phone to make a call or dialing by pressing more than a single button.

Truck drivers can only use hands-free phones located in close proximity. While cell phones are commonly regarded as the most prevalent type of distraction, they are not the only kind and there are many other kinds of distractions that could lead to a truck accident.

Types of Distracted Driving Truck Accidents

While cell phones are the most common item that gets associated with distracted driving, the phrase applies to all possible distractions. When a truck driver is distracted by anything, even a momentary failure to observe a certain circumstance may trigger a devastating crash.

Some of the other kinds of distractions that could affect truck drivers include, but are not limited to:

  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Smoking
  • Reading maps
  • Operating Global Positioning System (GPS)
  • Rubbernecking (paying attention to another motor vehicle accident)
  • Retrieving a dropped object

Not all distractions are necessarily provable, and it could be possible that a negligent truck driver was distracted by simple daydreaming. In other cases, driver fatigue may compound the severity of some distractions, leading to drivers taking longer to look at maps and placing people at greater risk.

Types of Distracted Driving Truck Accident Injuries

When you have been involved in a truck accident caused by distracted driving, you should certainly take pictures of everything involved in the scene of the crash. Your top priority, however, needs to be receiving medical care.

Remember that an insurance company will use any delay in treatment against you. Always go to a hospital, even if you do not think you were hurt.

Injuries people suffer in distracted driving truck accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Lacerations
  • Paralysis
  • Muscle strains
  • Fractures
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Sprains

After you have received medical care, immediately contact an attorney. They may be able to subpoena the phone records of negligent truck drivers to prove that they were active on their phones when crashes occurred.

Even when an accident is not cell phone-related, the lawyer can conduct an independent investigation that will determine the actual cause. Trucking companies can be held liable for the negligence of their drivers in some cases.
