Accidents involving large trucks are among the most serious and deadly in the United States. The problem is especially acute here in California, which has the highest volume of truck traffic of any state in the U.S. In 2004, there were 415 fatalities within the State of California in accidents involving large trucks.
It is a common misconception that accidents involving large trucks are simply personal injury cases involving a larger vehicle; there are specific laws and regulations governing the safety of commercial motor vehicles and issues which are unique to cases involving commercial vehicles. These cases require a thorough understanding of commercial vehicle regulations on both the federal and state level.
