The streets and freeways around Los Angeles see a great deal of truck traffic. Commercial trucks come in all sizes from smaller delivery trucks to the monsters known as eighteen wheelers and tractor trailers. Even a relatively small truck which delivers water or soft drinks when loaded outweighs the average passenger vehicle by a considerable amount. This accounts for the frequency of devastating injuries and fatalities when there is a truck accident.
Collisions between trucks and pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles and cars have become a more common occurrence as businesses grow and the population expands. Truck accidents must be treated very differently than a family car accident. For this reason anyone who has been injured in a truck accident is strongly urged to work with an attorney with many years of experience in bringing this type of claim for compensation to a successful conclusion.
