Fatal Trucking Accidents in California

Factors such as improper weight distribution, speeding, and drowsiness commonly contribute to trucking accidents in California that are repeatedly serious and often fatal. When a trailer is improperly loaded, even the slightest shift in weight can cause a severe collision involving several vehicles. Furthermore, just the size and power of such vehicles dramatically increases the gravity of a collision. Understanding your rights after a crash is of paramount importance.
