Over 3,000 people a year are killed or injured in tractor-trailer accidents in Southern California. Because of its 80,000-pound weight, a commercial vehicle can cause catastrophic injuries if it is involved in an accident. Despite the fact that most truck accidents are avoidable, they continue to negatively impact drivers. Commercial vehicles are larger than other vehicles, which makes them more likely to cause severe injuries to those in another vehicle.
