If you or a loved one are sick or have a medical emergency and need medical attention, you hope that you will be cared for, treated and diagnosed properly by medical professionals and health care facility staff. Sadly, even the best doctor, physician’s assistant or nurse can sometimes overlook vital patient information or may fail to diagnose or treat a patient within the appropriate standard of care, causing physical injury, emotional distress, loss of earnings or even death.

An override trucking accident occurs when the front end of a tractor trailer or large truck crashes into the back end of a car. Because of the height difference, the truck rides over the car or motorcycle in front of it. It is essentially a rear end collision but the consequences can be much worse because of the difference in size and height between the vehicles. Override accidents are very violent trucking crashes and are frequently fatal because of the amount of force exerted upon impact.

Caused Of Override Trucking Accidents
California tractor trailer override accidents can be caused by several factors. Bad weather and slippery or hazardous roads, combined with a driver not compensating for those factors in his or her driving, are common causes of trucking accidents. Other causes are drivers not paying attention to whom or what is in front of them, driving recklessly or having a poorly maintained vehicle. Drivers who drive longer than they are supposed to in an effort to log more hours or arrive at a destination on time also increase the risk of being involved in an override truck accident.
Injuries Caused By Override Truck Accidents
An override commercial vehicle accident can cause serious injuries. Due to the size and weight of a commercial truck, it typically destroys the car it runs over. In an override accident, severe head trauma can result, since the body of the car can go under the front of the truck, causing an impact directly with the upper portion of the passenger compartment. Broken bones, neck and back injuries are also typical in override truck accidents. Rear end trucking accidents can also result in death.
