Fatal Tractor-Trailer Accidents in California

Every year, accidents involving tractor-trailers cause injuries to almost 3,000 people in Southern California. While most trucking accidents are avoidable, they persist in having a significantly negative impact on other drivers sharing the road. 

Commercial trucks are much bigger than other vehicles, which raises the odds of them causing severe injuries to victims unlucky enough to be involved in an accident. In many cases, victims endure traumatic injuries that demand hospitalization, physical and psychological therapy, and various medical treatments both immediately and long-term. 

The physical and emotional repercussions of trucking accidents are almost always overwhelming. Additionally, victims are commonly forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical bills, go without earning a paycheck because they are physically unable to work, and are forced to deal with various other financial burdens from their accidents.
