California Truck Wrecks
There were approximately 475,000 commercial truck collisions in the United States in 2018. These accidents were mostly caused by human error. Truck drivers are often exhausted and overworked, further endangering those they come into contact with while driving. Currently, there are more than 11 million trucks actively operating in the United States. A large percentage of these trucks are most likely operated by fatigued, overworked drivers who carry dangerous loads.
Being involved in a car wreck with a commercial truck can be terrifying. Tractor-trailers are about 20 times heavier than the average sedan. Usually, victims injured in wrecks with semis often sustain much worse injuries than those injured in other types of accidents.
It can be devastating to sustain injuries in a traffic wreck involving a semi. If you or someone you love has recently been hurt in a traffic collision, you are probably already aware of the consequences that follow. These consequences can range from financial and emotional to physical in nature.
