Truck accidents: A tragic Californian example

Large trucks carrying heavy loads are not an uncommon sight on California roads. These massive vehicles transport all kinds of goods all over the state. Unfortunately, truck accidents often cause serious injuries to those involved.

An accident on a recent Wednesday at the end of July is a tragic example of the serious consequences of truck accidents. It is reported that a logging truck overturned as it went around a bend in the road. The truck's load spilled onto the road and landed in the path of an oncoming vehicle, an empty logging truck.

The 65-year-old driver of the empty logging truck suffered serious injuries and had to be airlifted to a medical center in the nearby region. Fortunately, the 59-year-old driver of the overturned truck escaped injuries. Authorities are investigating the accident.

Should the investigation into the accident suggest or document negligence on the part of the driver or the logging company, the seriously injured California victim has the choice to file a personal injury claim against the driver and/or the company. Driver negligence may be indicated if there is evidence that the truck driver was speeding and took the turn too fast. The company may be held responsible for driver negligence, but also if the investigation should indicate that the truck was badly loaded or overloaded. An attorney with experience in handling personal injury claims is in the ideal position to provide advice to the seriously injured victim, or similarly situated people, regarding the most appropriate way forward.
