Investigations surrounding the crash are currently underway.

Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, and everyone affected by this accident.

Truck Accidents in California

More than 2,900 people are injured in commercial vehicle accidents throughout Southern California each year. Bus accidents often result in a higher number of patients due to the fact that they can carry a significant number of people on board. 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. Quite often, victims are rushed from the scene of accidents to local hospitals where they have to undergo emergency medical services. After emergency treatment, victims have to spend weeks or even months in therapy and going back and forth to treatment. 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. In many cases, victims are left permanently disabled as a result of their injuries. 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. Victims may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face moving forward.
