Tractor-Trailer Accident Injuries

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (a division of the United States Department of Labor) reported that 122,660 Californians were employed as drivers of heavy trucks and tractor-trailers. (See source.) These included truck drivers engaged in:

  • General freight trucking
  • Specialized freight trucking
  • Grocery and related product merchant wholesale trucking
  • Cement and concrete product manufacturing-related trucking

Besides its great size and population, California’s geography no doubt plays a large role in its trucking industry. Ports along the coast of California include the Port of Humboldt Bay, Port of Hueneme, Port of Long Beach, Port of Los Angeles, Port of Oakland, Port of Redwood City, Port of San Diego, Port of San Francisco, Port of Stockton and the Port of West Sacramento. Each of these ports is the site of international commercial cargo transportation. Tractor-trailers pick up imported materials and deliver materials for export at these ports.

Furthermore, California’s long north-to-south Interstate 5 sees large amounts of tractor-trailer activity as trucks deliver cargo going to and from Oregon, Washington, Canada and Mexico.

For all these reasons, California is the site of many trucking accidents. Traffic congestion, inexperienced drivers and sometimes mountainous terrain all play a part in setting the scene for truck accidents. Tractor-trailer drivers in a hurry to meet quotas often fail to rest the number of hours that industry standards, state laws and federal laws require. Loading dock crews are sometimes negligent, as well. Other negligent parties may include government bodies responsible for signage, road design, maintenance and upkeep.

If you were seriously injured or if a loved one lost his or her life in an accident involving a tractor-trailer and a car in California or elsewhere in the United States, Frantz Law Group, welcomes the opportunity to evaluate your case.
