Bay Area Truck Accidents
Trucks often weigh as much as 30 times more than a passenger vehicle. The size, the weight, and momentum of a moving eighteen wheeler almost always make truck accidents catastrophic. Operating a commercial truck can be difficult and requires extensive training and strict adherence to safety regulations. When these safety measures are skipped, or drivers engage in careless or risky behaviors, the consequences can be devastating. Accidents such as Brain Injuries can occur which can cause long-lasting affects.
