What are the common injuries sustained in truck accidents?

Trucks are huge vehicles! The legal weight of an 18-wheeler is 80,000 lbs, or 40 tonnes.
Therefore, because of the sheer size of trucks, unlike car or motorcycle accidents, truck accident victims are often at a much greater risk of severe injury, or even death. The experienced truck accident lawyers at California Attorney Group recommend that no matter how minor you may think a truck accident injury is, always seek medical attention from a doctor for your injuries. The Los Angeles tuck accident lawyers at California Attorney Group have years of experience devoting care an attention to their truck accident cases. Contact us today at 1-800-337-8547.
