Tractor-Trailer Accidents in California
Every year, truck accidents cause injuries to more than 2,900 people in Southern California. Even though most truck accidents are avoidable, they continue to have a hugely negative impact on other drivers sharing the road.
Commercial vehicles are much bigger than other vehicles, which heightens the odds of them causing serious injuries to victims involved in collisions with them. In many cases, victims sustain traumatic injuries that demand hospitalization, therapy, and numerous kinds of medical treatment both immediately and long-term.
The physical and psychological repercussions of tractor-trailer accidents are almost always overwhelming. To make matters even worse, victims are typically forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical bills, go without an income because they are unable to work, and are forced to deal with various other financial burdens from their accidents.
