Truck Accident in Los Angeles Fatally Injures Motorcyclist

Posted by SimonEsfandi on January 4th, 2019

Operating a small motor vehicle can be quite complicated sometimes. But operating a truck, especially the one towing additional cargo, requires special training, focus, concentration and constant awareness. Truckers are known for driving serious mileage every day; they are notorious for being constantly tired and are prone to making mistakes. These mistakes can lead to an accident and cause death to one or more individuals.

In California, there are a lot of cases where trucks cause an accident involving motorcyclists. Unfortunately, most of the motorcyclists end up paying the ultimate price.

If you are a truck driver or motorcyclist, here are the things you should be aware of in order to raise your safety while on the road. 

RESPECT THE SPEED LIMIT

The rule number one of the open road (or any road) is to respect the limitations. In this case, it is the speed limit. If you are driving at the maximum allowed speed, the chances are that you will get where you are going much faster. However, if one single mistake or lack of focus causes you to drift from your lane, you may hit the car behind or next to you, cause an accident or someone’s death.

This is especially important for motorcyclists, who tend to speed up and take narrow space between the trucks and the safety fence at their own advantage. But passing other trucks in that narrow gap is never a good or safe option. Too many times it can happen that a truck driver doesn’t see the motorcyclist, or wants to pull over and ends up pushing them against the fence. This will surely result in a small catastrophe.

If you are a motorcyclist or another driver who has been involved in an accident caused by a truck driver’s negligence, you should immediately contact Los Angeles Truck Accident Attorneys and schedule your initial consultation, completely free of charge. 

DISTRACTIONS END IN DISASTER

Any distraction on the road, whether it is taking your hands off the wheel or reaching out for a cigarette may cause an accident. In one moment, you may see no vehicles approaching you, but as you reach out to grab the cigarette, or check the message on your phone, a speeding motorcyclist could appear out of nowhere and get in front or on the side of you. And as you were distracted, you will cause an accident.

For this reason, all truck drivers should driver within the allowed speed limit, but never close to the upper limit. Always drive at least 10-15 mph less than the allowed speed limit. Get rid of all distractions, and only use your phone when parked, taking a break or refueling. Every other scenario may lead to someone’s death.
