Truck Accident Statistics in California

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  
Tagged in: Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks, such as semi-trucks and tractor trailers, play a huge role in the economy, transporting goods from manufacturers and warehouses to various points of sale. Our truck accident attorney in Encino understands that hazardous road conditions, driver negligence, poor maintenance, lack of safety inspections, and uneven loads can all lead to an increased risk of accidents.

Every year, more than 200 vehicle collisions involve a large truck. The size of an average passenger vehicle at about 2 tons pales in comparison to a semi-truck with a trailer attached, which can measure up to 75 feet long and weight up to 80,000 pounds. More than 5,000 people are injured in these accidents every year, with more than 200 losing their lives. Those who survive may experience extensive and life-long disability including disfiguring scars, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, or traumatic brain injuries.

Our Encino personal injury lawyer has experience in working with truck accident claims for those who have suffered an injury or loss due to a motor vehicle collision with a large truck. Insurance companies are not looking out for your best interests, but a qualified attorney can help your case. While it is important to give yourself time to heal following an accident, there are time limits on when you can file a claim to receive compensation for these cases. Our experienced attorneys can help you with your claim, allowing you to focus more on your recovery.
