On any typical day in Los Angeles, thousands of tractor-trailer trucks travel through the city. Semi-truck accident cases can be very different from regular car accident cases. When a large, heavy truck collides with a normal car, the result is usually a catastrophic injury or even death. These truck accidents are often caused by the negligence of the truck driver, the trucking company or even the state if the accident was caused due to hazardous road conditions or road design.
Trucks and “tractor trailers” are not cars. Attorneys who handle simple vehicle accidents are typically not familiar with – or experienced with – the complex details that mean the difference between winning and losing your case. Driver training, driver qualifications, techniques, safety management and more are regulated across the industry by local, state and federal government. Truck accidents don’t only occur due to driver or company error and negligence but due to faulty equipment such as tire inflation, brakes, tire wear, steering and lighting.
