Fatal Trucking Accidents in California

Trucking accidents in California are repetitively caused by a multitude of factors such as incorrect weight distribution, drowsiness, and speeding. When a trailer is ineffectively loaded, even a trivial transference in weight can cause a terribly serious accident. Additionally, the absolute size and power of such large vehicles often increase the gravity of injuries during a crash, often resulting in death. Knowing your rights and how to hold a negligent party responsible is of the utmost importance following a sudden accident.
