Commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds including cargo, which
can cause a serious accident against another car, motorcycle, or bicyclist
on the road. There are a number of different injuries which can be incurred
in a truck accident, but in most cases they tend to be quite severe.

wrongful death, Our Fair Oaks truck accident lawyers represent clients who have suffered
any type of injury in a trucking accident.
Who is Liable After a Truck Accident?
Oftentimes, the party held responsible after a trucking accident is the
trucking company. There are a handful of reasons for this, but commonly
trucking companies require their drivers to break rules for the purpose
of saving time and money. This may include less frequent rest stops than
legally required or other rules.
There are times when the driver is held responsible if they were practicing
negligence to rules and laws set for them. On occasion, the cargo loading
company or truck manufacturer can be held responsible, if the accident
was truly because of a fault on their part.
