Tow Truck accident attorneys in California

Tow trucks often provide invaluable assistance to some people in desperate situations, but they can also add to congestions around crash scenes when they are attempting to possibly tow away one of the vehicles involved. In September 2006, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Assembly Bill No. 2210 (AB 2210), which prohibited “bandit towing” or “predatory towing” of vehicles on private property when the vehicle owner protests the towing.

Tow trucks are subject to a number of other regulations, including California Vehicle Code § 22406, which limits truck tractors towing other vehicles to speeds of no more than 55 miles per hour (mph). When a tow truck breaks any traffic law, it is far more likely to be involved in a motor vehicle accident.

Causes of Tow Truck Accidents

Tow truck crashes are often the result of driver negligence. Some drivers may have been speeding. Other drivers could have made illegal turns. A number of common traffic violations can be the cause of an accident.

It could also be possible that a driver was distracted. When a tow truck driver was talking or text messaging on a cell phone, their phone records could be the subject of a subpoena and used as evidence of negligence.

Tow truck drivers also work very late hours, so driver fatigue can easily be the cause of a crash. Some accidents involve drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or illegal or prescription drugs.

Other possible causes not necessarily attributable to driver error include, but are not limited to:

  • Inclement weather
  • Mechanical defects
  • Unsecured loads
  • Failure to maintain vehicle
  • Overloaded trailers
  • Brake failure

The tow truck driver is not necessarily the defendant in your personal injury case. It will instead be the company that owned the vehicle that will be liable, but certain cases could involve additional defendants when there are other negligent parties.

Types of Tow Truck Accident Injuries

Tow truck collisions frequently involve significant force and trauma to everybody involved. The results are frequently devastating.

Injuries people could sustain in tow truck accidents cases include, but are not limited to:

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

People who have suffered any one of these kinds of injuries can be very confused about what to do after an accident, and a good general rule to remember is not to say anything about your crash to anybody until you have a lawyer. Be especially careful not to post anything about the accident on a social media website.

You will probably be contacted by an insurance company for the tow truck. You could be offered the opportunity to provide a recorded statement in which you supposedly summarize what happened, but you should decline this invitation until you have an attorney.
