Why Semi-truck Accidents are More Complicated
Crashes involving semi-trucks, also called 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, and big rigs, are more complicated than run-of-the-mill car accident cases:
🚛 Big rigs can weigh 20x’s the average passenger vehicle
🚛 Occupants of passenger vehicles suffer the majority of injuries and deaths in crashes involving large trucks
🚛 40% of large truck accidents occur when the front of the truck collides with the passenger vehicle
🚛 The LA Basin has a much higher ratio of trucks to passenger cars than most metropolitan areas, putting Southern California residents at an increased risk of a collision with a large truck
Semi-truck accidents can be catastrophic and can be classified as jackknifes, underrides, hitch failures, overloads, rollovers, and cargo spills. There are a number of parties that may hold at least some of the responsibility for your accident. Determining who to file your claim against requires a thorough investigation led by expert truck accident attorneys.
