The most common truck accident injuries

Many drivers in California become anxious when sharing the road with commercial trucks. Collisions with trucks and passenger vehicles usually end in death with 97 percent of the fatalities being occupants of the passenger vehicles. When these accidents don't end in death, they often leave victims to deal with catastrophic injuries. Below are some of the most common injuries that victims incur.

What to do after a car accident

Getting into an accident on a California road can be a unsettling experience. After an accident occurs, it is a driver's legal responsibility to stop even if no apparent damage has been done. While it can be tempting to do so, drivers are not under an obligation to admit fault for the crash. Furthermore, no one should attempt to move a vehicle until police arrive unless not doing so creates a safety hazard.

New technologies warn distracted truck drivers, reduce crashes

California readers may be surprised to learn that car and truck accidents caused by distracted driving tend to be more severe than those caused by other factors, such as drunk driving. This is because while a drunk driver may at least attempt to brake or steer away from an impending collision, a distracted driver isn't even aware a collision is coming. As a result, he or she may slam into another car at full speed.

Software startup could benefit U.S. trucking industry

California motorists are likely aware of the challenges that commercial truck drivers face. The average trucker is on the road for 70 hours over the course of an eight-day workweek, so fatigue behind the wheel is a constant risk. Because of this, turnover rates tend to be high, sometimes exceeding 90 percent, and truckers are in short supply.
