Trucking Accidents in Los Angeles

Trucking accidents in California are frequently caused by various factors such as speed and weight distribution. Tractor-trailers often carry extremely heavy loads and the improper distribution of weight inside the trailer can quickly contribute to a collision. Due to other factors such as drowsy or distracted driving alongside the size and power of such vehicles, truck accidents are often extremely serious and even fatal.
