Accident Lawyer Robert A Brenner Aids the Victims of Truck Accidents

Woodland Hills, CA (PressExposure) November 06, 2009 -- The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) results from its 2007 study of large truck accidents showed that collisions between large trucks and vehicles accounted for 101,000 injuries and 4,808 deaths. The occupants of the trucks only accounted for 22 percent of those injured and 17 percent of those killed. Out of the trucks involved in accidents, trucks pulling a semi-trailer accounted for 62 percent of fatal crashes and 46 percent of nonfatal crashes.

“Most drivers of large trucks are careful,” said Robert A. Brenner a Los Angeles, California truck accident attorney, “but sometimes a truck driver may drive too fast, maneuver into another lane, fail to pay attention, or fail to yield to the right of way. These are the typical causes of fatal and nonfatal truck accidents with vehicles.”

Brenner, a personal injury attorney, is the founder of the Burn Injury Law Group and the Catastrophic Injury Law Group. Brenner has helped many victims of truck accidents recover monetary compensation for their pain and suffering, rehabilitation costs, past and future medical bills, and lost income. In fatal crashes, Brenner has helped family members recover damages for their loved one’s wrongful death.

The FMCSA report also found that speeding was a factor in 25 percent of fatal crashes, adverse weather was rarely significant, and 24 percent of crashes in work zones involved a truck.

“Truck drivers are required by law to follow trucking industry rules and safety guidelines,” said Brenner. “The FMCSA, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and every state have rules governing the trucking industry. To prevent driver fatigue, for instance, a truck driver may only drive a certain number of hours. In addition, trucks must meet equipment and safety standards. A violation of any of these regulations may help prove a truck driver’s fault in a collision. “
