ACCIDENTS

Trusted Truck Accident Attorneys Putting Your Best Interest at the Forefront

In California (and many other states), large truck accidents are increasingly common. There are many different types of commercial trucks. These include semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, construction trucks, and big rigs.

In the year 2018, almost 5,000 people in the United States suffered fatal injuries as a result of large truck crashes. In that same year, more than 150,000 people sustained non-fatal injuries in collisions. In total, over 530,000 police reports cited traffic accidents that involved large trucks.

California is the second-highest state in the nation when it comes to fatal large truck accidents. Many of these collisions occur within the borders of Los Angeles County.

When large truck crashes are the result of negligence or carelessness, injury victims have the right to seek financial compensation. Negligence can take many forms.

Some of the most common incidents of negligence include:

  • A driver speeding on roadways.
  • Improperly secured or overloaded cargo.
  • Poorly maintained trucks or equipment.
  • Drivers operating a vehicle while distracted or drowsy.

No matter what the cause may be, negligence can result in extreme danger. Large trucks are particularly hazardous because of their enormous size and weight.

When an injury happens, the consequences can be life-altering. The victim may feel like they are left alone to pick up the pieces. But if you or someone you love has been the victim of a large truck accident, you do not have to go it alone.
