Truck Accidents in California
Truck accidents are often devastating. Unfortunately, the size and weight of these vehicles mean that they are more likely to be destructive during accidents. We see countless people hospitalized with serious injuries as a result of these collisions every single day.
If you have been hurt as a result of a truck accident, you may be able to take legal action against the person who caused the crash. In California, there are several parties who can be held liable for any damages and injuries that you have suffered in a truck accident.
In most cases, victims file claims against the driver of the truck. The truck driver can be held liable for negligence if it is found that they were not operating their vehicle in a responsible manner at the time of the accident. This can include drivers who are speeding, intoxicated, or distracted while behind the wheel. Other parties who can be held liable include the trucking company, the owner of the truck, and the manufacturer of the truck.
