Accidents with semi-tractor trailer trucks can result in serious bodily injuries for the victims. Southern California is a hub for the transportation of commerce, especially in areas around Los Angeles. With the amount of commercial trucks on the highways throughout Southern California, it is no surprise that truck accidents are quite common.
Common Types of Truck Accidents
Drivers of commercial trucks are held to very high standards because of the dangers that their vehicle pose.
