Fatal Tractor-Trailer Accidents in Fresno
More than 2,900 people are injured in truck accidents throughout 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.
Although most commercial vehicle accidents are preventable, they continue to have negative consequences for drivers sharing the road. Commercial vehicles are far larger than other vehicles sharing the road, which increases the chances of them causing serious injuries to victims involved in collisions with them.
In many cases, victims sustain traumatic injuries that require hospitalization, therapy, and various types of medical treatment both immediately and long-term.
