Trucking Accidents in California

According to recent studies, trucking accidents in California are habitually caused by various factors such as improper weight distribution, high speeds, and drowsy driving. When a trailer is unsatisfactorily loaded, even an insignificant shift in weight can suddenly trigger a severe collision. Furthermore, the downright size and power of such immensely large vehicles often increase the magnitude of an accident, resulting in catastrophic and even fatal injuries.
