The number of injury crashes due to large trucks or buses has increased by 62% from 2009 to 2015 with California having the most number of recorded truck accidents in the last ten years, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the report of Accidents.com.
As truck accidents become prevalent, the risk of suffering long-term, if not fatal, consequences increases as well. If you or a family member was involved in such accidents, you may obtain compensation for injuries by suing the responsible party.
