Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer In Beaumont

Every year, nearly 3,000 people are killed or injured in tractor-trailer accidents throughout Southern California. An accident involving a commercial vehicle can cause catastrophic injuries due to its weight of 80,000 pounds. Despite the fact that most truck accidents are avoidable, they continue to have negative impacts on drivers. Commercial vehicles are much larger than other vehicles, making them more likely to cause severe injuries to those in another vehicle.

Traumatic injuries typically require hospitalization, therapy, and various types of medical treatment both immediately and in the long run.
