The number of motor- vehicle collisions in California, involving heavily loaded trucks, semi trailer trucks, commercial and transportation vehicles as well as tractor trailers may be 3 times lower than the auto accidents but the figures are still quite high. The US department of transportation estimates over 500,000 truck accidents every year. Only 16% of them, however, happened due to the driver’s negligence, which indicates there is an extremely high percentage of accidental personal injury cases in the state.
This is the main reason why commercial truck operators or the companies they are working for are often involved in trial procedures and demand to be financially compensated for their pain and suffering, lost wages and medical treatment. Such a compensation is often easily obtained out of court with the help of a reputed accidental negligence attorney, who settles with the insurance company of the party found guilty.
