Commercial Vehicles Are A Significant Threat
At any given point, California’s roads, streets, and highways are crowded with tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of trucks. Driving next to those commercial vehicles on California’s already congested streets can have severe consequences. Even experienced truck drivers have difficulty navigating roads, may not be fully aware of their surroundings, and may make common mistakes. Common causes of commercial vehicle accidents include:
- Driver error
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Trucking company negligence
- Poor truck maintenance
- Unstable trucks
- Overweight trailers
- Unsecured loads
- Poor training
- Sleep deprivation
Hundreds Of Thousands Of People Are Injured Or Killed Due To Accidents With Large Trucks And 18-Wheelers Each Year
Injuries can be catastrophic, injuring victims all over their bodies. Due to the extent of injuries commonly caused by commercial vehicle accidents, and the potential liability of trucking companies, insurance companies vigorously defend against these claims and lawsuits even when their driver was clearly at fault. Pursuing these claims alone could be drastic and daunting. Insurance companies will often try to bully, intimidate, and take advantage of Plaintiffs.
