Cement trucks can be dangerous and can be the cause of devastating truck accident injuries on California roads and highways. These trucks carry heavy loads that are often times improperly secured or fastened which can release on highways or roads. When the cement truck is involved in an accident, the injuries can be severe. If you have been involved in an accident with a cement truck contact our offices today for a free case evaluation.
Cement trucks can be dangerous for a number of reasons, which include the following:
High probability of rollovers. Cement trucks have a high chance of rolling over, even when they are making low speed turns. Speeds as low as 5 MPH can cause these vehicles to turn over. Often times these rollovers are caused by hasty turns made by the drivers in order to deliver their load on time. Drivers are often times forced to make negligent driving decisions in order to avoid hardening of the cement. Many times drivers are docked pay or charged when they fail to deliver the load on time. This causes an inherent danger with these deliveries. Drivers are forced to make poor driving decisions, and drive at un-safe speeds in order to avoid docked pay. Our offices will do the investigation needed to determine liability. These cases require creative thinking to determine the best case strategy. If you have been injured contact our offices for a free case evaluation today.
Improperly certified drivers make for dangerous road conditions. Driving a cement truck or operating any vehicle carrying a load of more the 26,001 pounds requires a Class A license. In order to have the qualifications for such a license drivers must past a particular driving test. Class A license tests you knowledge, air brakes, a CDL road test and other qualifications. If your driver fails to have the proper license and is involved in an accident, liability will be imposed. If the driver is not properly qualified, the risk of serious injury increases.
Malfunctioning equipment on the cement truck make is dangerous. In certain situations where the cement truck is stopped, serious injury can still occur. This happens when the cement truck fails to work properly. Certain operating equipment on the truck can fail to perform as intended, thus causing injuries. When this occurs nearby pedestrians, construction workers or other vehicles are exposed to harmful and dangerous conditions. It is important to understand the cause of the malfunction in order to bring forth the proper cause of action.
While this is not a complete list it does outline some of the more common injuries resulting from collision caused by cement trucks. In such instances it is important to seek medical attention immediately.
Generally your insurance provider or the insurance provider of defendant will cover your medical bills. However, many times the injured party or plaintiff is forced to pay certain cost out of pocket and is reimbursed many months or possibly years later. Additionally plaintiffs neglect seeking the best treatment because there are considerable out of pocket cost. Our offices work with the top medical doctors and physicians and retain many of these medical practitioners on a medical lien. A medical lien allows you to seek treatment without payment upfront. Only after a settlement is reached you will be liable for the payments, which will be paid from any settlement. This allows you to receive the best treatment for your injuries.
One of the most common questions is what is my claim worth? While this is a legitimate question, beware of attorneys who promise you big numbers or settlements. It is almost impossible to calculate the value of your claim without getting a full prognosis from you doctor and considering all the factors. To get a better understanding of your injuries you should consider a few different factors:
A good attorney will inform you of the factors which will be argued for. It is important to not get swayed by large promises of settlement because these figures are often times un-realistic.
