Truck accident statistics show that every year 18-wheeler truck accidents injure over 150,000 people and kill over 5,000. As many drivers have observed, California has its fair share of 18 wheelers.
We have successfully represented injured persons in Los Angeles, the Bay Area and throughout the State of California who were injured as a result of serious and catastrophic trucking accidents says Peck Law Group Personal Injury Lawyer Steven Peck.
18 wheeler semi accidents should not be handled the same way as a normal car wreck. There are many regulations that apply to trucks and trucking companies which do not apply to the average driver.
It is critical that 18 wheeler car wrecks are handled by a Peck Law Group Lawyer who has an in-depth understanding and experience in handling these matters. In most instances, the trucking companies hire top-notch truck accident attorneys who can easily out maneuver a lawyer who is not familiar with the specific truck accident law in this area and does not have experience in how to handle truck accident law.
