Tractor-Trailer Accidents in Manteca
Tractor-trailers, just like other oversized commercial vehicles, are responsible for a significant portion of accidents across the state of California. Because of the sheer size of these trucks, the majority of them weighing 30 times as much as a passenger car, an accident involving one can quickly bring on disastrous, life-altering consequences.
The driver and passengers of the car will inevitably undergo a much worse outcome to a crash than the truck driver. These commercial trucks are also very difficult to handle. Truckers are required to exhibit a reasonable duty of care to obey the rules of the road and to not harm others while they are in operation.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an accident involving a tractor-trailer then you may have a right to financial compensation to cover any damages such as hospital bills, lost wages due to time away from work, pain and suffering, or even wrongful death.
