Our readers who are familiar with previous posts here know the potential danger that drivers on the roads in Los Angeles may be in when they are around semi-trucks. These large vehicles weigh thousands of pounds more than the average passenger vehicle. As a result, the damage and injuries that can be caused when a semi-truck collides with a smaller vehicle can be devastating.
However, it isn't just semi-trucks that Los Angeles residents need to be on the lookout for when they are out on the roads and highways in the greater metropolitan area. In fact, large trucks such as delivery trucks, buses and other vehicles with commercial uses can also cause devastation at a similar scale to what a person might see in a collision between an automobile and a semi-truck. Again, the weight disparity can trigger all sorts of concerns when a smaller vehicle is struck by a larger vehicle.
In the aftermath of such a collision, it is important for the injured drivers and their passengers to be aware of their potential legal options.
If the accident wasn't your fault, you may be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against not just the driver of the larger vehicle, but potentially that driver's employer as well.
At our law firm, we understand that those who have been injured in a collision with a large truck are looking for answers and want to know how to proceed legally, if they are able to do so. We do our best to help Los Angeles area residents who find themselves in this type of terrible predicament.
