Speeding trucks accidents attorneys in California

California Vehicle Code § 22406 provides a maximum speed limit of 55 miles per hour for any motortruck or truck tractor having three or more axles or any motortruck or truck tractor drawing any other vehicle, passenger vehicle or bus drawing any other vehicle, schoolbus transporting any school pupil, farm labor vehicle when transporting passengers, vehicle transporting explosives, and trailer bus. Assembly Bill 172 (AB 172) was introduced in January 2019 and sought to increase the speed limit for these vehicles to 65 miles per hour in rural areas, but 55 remains the law for now.

Truck drivers risk far more than just speeding tickets when they defy the state speed limit. While truck drivers are under immense pressure to get deliveries to destinations as quickly as possible, speeding increases the likelihood of the commercial truck causing or being involved in a motor vehicle accident.

Types of Speeding Truck Accidents

When a truck driver is speeding, they are at increased risk of losing control of their vehicle. Any kind of sudden emergency in the roadway does not leave a speeding truck driver enough time to respond to the hazard.

Some of the most common kinds of accidents could include, but are not limited to:

  • Head-On Collisions
  • Rear-End Collisions
  • Wide-Turning Accidents
  • Rollover Accidents
  • Intersection Accidents
  • Blocking Accidents
  • Override Accidents
  • Underride Accidents
  • T-Bone Collisions
  • Jackknife Accidents

A truck driver could be cited for speeding when a police officer saw the offense. When an officer is responding to a crash without having seen the speeding, you should look for other people who might have saw your accident and can verify that the truck was speeding because those individuals could be valuable witnesses.

Types of Speeding Truck Accident Injuries

Crashes caused by speeding commercial trucks are much more likely to result in catastrophic injuries. Victims often feel the full force of full-speed impact in these cases.

Such collisions can cause a wide range of injuries, depending on where occupants were seated and other factors. Common injuries in these cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Burn injuries
  • Sprains
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Muscle strains
  • Fractures
  • Paralysis
  • Lacerations
  • Neck injuries

A speeding commercial truck is also more likely to possibly cause fatal injuries. The family of a person killed by a truck driver who was speeding can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the truck driver and possibly the trucking company.
