Imperial, CA. Injuries Reported in Collision Between a Car and a Tractor-Trailer
Imperial, CA. (June 28, 2018) – The California Highway Patrol reported a crash Thursday morning between a tractor-trailer and another vehicle. The accident reportedly occurred at approximately 9:55 a.m. Thursday morning in the westbound lanes of East Aten Road in Imperial, west of Highway 111.
According to the report, a black Nissan Altima apparently crashed into the rear-end of a tractor-trailer at the intersection for reasons that are currently unknown.

As of right now, we wish any victims of this accident a full recovery from their injuries.
Trucking Accident Injury Attorney
Accidents that involve a large commercial truck are generally handled quite differently than other motor vehicle accidents. Typically, the trucking company will be held liable just so long as the driver is determined to have acted negligently while working. Investigators will be looking to see if excessive speed, intoxication, distracted driving, or anything else that may be considered negligent behavior was involved.
Depending on the outcome of the investigation, there may be grounds for a personal injury claim to follow. Many victims who experience large hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage as the result of an accident will attempt to seek compensation. Of course, this is a personal decision that can only be made by the victim.
