Truck Accident Lawyer – Los Angeles
Semi-trucks are called big rigs for a reason: they are 20 to 30 times heavier than the average passenger car. In the hands of a distracted or careless driver, the sheer force of these trucks can cause catastrophic injuries and deaths. When collisions involve excessive speed or substance abuse, the results are often tragic.
If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, you need an aggressive truck accident lawyer in Los Angeles who will fight big to help you get the compensation you deserve for your losses.
The streets, freeways, and highways of Southern California are swarming with traffic. It’s no surprise that Los Angeles County has the highest truck fatalities and injuries in California. The majority of trucking accidents happen along the I-10 and I-5, each averaging 2.7 accidents per day.
Unfortunately, many truck accidents are needlessly caused by distracted truckers (looking at their phone or GPS), lack of sleep, driving too fast, not following traffic rules, impairment due to drugs or alcohol, and lack of common sense.
The consequences of these careless behaviors lead to unnecessary, tragic, and completely avoidable accidents.
