ROTECT YOURSELF AND AVOID PROBLEMS
Commercial trucks and delivery trucks present dangers to smaller vehicles. Not only do truck drivers need to be aware of the dangers presented by their large y vehicles, but other drivers need to be more careful in their presence.
Truck accident claims are very different from car accident claims. The trucking industry must comply with strict state and federal regulations, including service hours, vehicle maintenance, driver qualifications, weight limits and etc. If any party is found to have violated these regulations - whether it is the driver, trucking company, truck parts manufacturer, a third party, or all of the above - they can be held liable for the injuries that they caused.
18 wheelers or semi-trucks are some of the largest vehicles on the roads and highways. These massive vehicles drive side-by-side with smaller cars, motorcycles, cyclists and pedestrians. These commercial trucks poses a significant risk of damage to the occupants of passenger vehicles. Thus, when commercial trucks are involved in a crash with smaller vehicles, the drivers and passengers are often involved serious or even fatal injuries.
In general, the statute of limitations in California for filing a case for injuries caused by an auto accident is 2 years from the date of the injury.
If the truck was owned or operated by a public entity, such as a the state, a city or county, a formal written claim must be filed with the appropriate public entity within 6 months of the date of the incident.
