Trucking Accidents in California

According to some of the most current studies, trucking accidents in California are most commonly triggered by factors such as incorrect weight distribution, high speeds, and driver fatigue. Many truck drivers are forced to drive as many hours as possible each day and even the slightest bit of inattention can quickly cause a severe collision. Furthermore, the size and power of such extremely large vehicles greatly increase the severity of a sudden crash.
