Truck Accidents in California
Accidents involving semi-trucks and commercial vehicles can cause a tremendous amount of damage and personal injuries. Commercial vehicles weigh approximately 26,000 pounds which is more than five times the weight of a large pickup truck. It is easy to imagine that the force and impact of a commercial truck crash will result in potentially catastrophic injuries for victims. Liability for truck accidents is often a contested issue, so the cause of the collision must be carefully investigated.
Following a truck accident in California, injured victims should seek the advice and assistance of an experienced truck accident attorney. Having a skilled lawyer by your side is important in serious accident cases. Too often, victims try to handle their own cases.
