Truck Accidents in California
The National Highway Transportation Safety Association reported that 361 people died from crashes involving large trucks in California in 2017. Even more troubling, however, is that according to the report, this number grows higher yearly: from 259 in 2103 to 305 in 2015, up to the 361 reported in 2017.
Truck accidents can cause major injuries, causing life-long pain. They also result in fatal accidents. Due to the fact that big rig trucks are so much larger and heavier than cars, their possibility for serious damage during an accident is high.
