When an individual is involved in a car accident, he or she could be seriously injured. Just imagine the outcome when that individual is involved in a truck accident that weighs more than ten times the amount of an automobile. Did you know that there is a truck accident every 20 minutes or less in the United States?
The amount of truck accidents in California is on the rise. Companies are hiring drivers that are overworked or exhausted from long hauls. There are cases when trucking companies do not have the money to make sure the trucks are in good working conditions and a driver will leave with faulty parts in his or her truck.
Are you aware that some truckers work over 12 hours a day? Some take drugs to stay awake, which can cause them to lose control of the vehicle.
If you are involved in an accident with a truck, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has been successful in truck-related accidents to see if you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, damages and expenses.
