Truck Accident Lawyers in Southern California
A traffic accident involving a commercial truck, such as an eighteen-wheeler
or other large freight carrier, can be much more catastrophic than an
ordinary car accident. A typical fully-loaded large commercial truck can
weigh 80,000 pounds or more, while an average passenger automobile weighs
approximately 3,000 pounds.
Because of this size disparity, and due to the basic laws of physics, any
collision between a commercial truck and another vehicle is likely to
result in serious, even fatal, injuries. While statistics show that truck
drivers are generally much more careful on the road than automobile drivers,
and thankfully the incidence of fatal crashes involving trucks and other
large vehicles has declined in recent years, large truck crashes still
account for a large amount of injuries annually.
The unique danger posed by commercial truck accidents can be made worse
depending on the nature of the freight the truck is carrying. For example,
if hazardous or flammable materials are on board, secondary injuries attributable
to such dangerous cargo can result, including burns and respiratory injuries.
Since these accidents can have such devastating results, it is important
to have an experienced Southern California truck accident lawyer on your side.
