California Trucking Accident
Accidents involving large commercial vehicles are often handled a little bit differently in terms of liability. While the trucking company likely has their own investigators, they will be working with authorities in order to come to conclusion. If the final results of the investigations show that the truck driver acted negligently or that the crash was caused by a mechanical failure on behalf of the big rig, then there will certainly be grounds for a personal injury claim available to the victim. Of course, only the victim can make the personal decision to seek financial compensation.
