Truck Accidents in California
More than 2,900 people are injured in truck accidents throughout Southern California each year. Commercial vehicles can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, which means they have the potential to cause catastrophic injuries to victims involved in collisions. This is particularly true when victims are traveling in smaller vehicles. The mental, physical, and emotional consequences of semi-truck accidents are often overwhelming. To make matters even worse, victims often face stacking medical bills, lost wages, and thousands of dollars in bills to replace or repair their vehicles. When victims are injured in collisions resulting from negligent and reckless drivers, they should reach out to a truck accident attorney in California as soon as possible.
