18-Wheeler Accidents in Shasta County
Thousands of tractor-trailers and other large commercial trucks drive up and down California highways every year. Because of their excessively large size and diminished capacity for maneuverability, these oversized vehicles pose several risks to passenger car drivers and pedestrians.
Collisions with tractor-trailers, especially those that occur at higher rates of speed, can result in catastrophic injuries, as well as property damage to other vehicles. These severe bodily injuries, including loss of limbs, paralysis, broken bones, internal bleeding, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries are the most common outcomes of accidents that involve tractor-trailers.
