Are Truck Accidents Common in Los Angeles?
Los Angeles highways riddled with construction and potholes, city streets
that are often at too steep an incline, and miles-long stretches of interstate
highways without rest stops are bound to pose risks to even the most conscientious
truck drivers. These same roads become significantly more dangerous when
drivers ignore safety protocols and drive recklessly, while fatigued,
or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
According to truck crash statistics from the California Highway Patrol
(CHP), Los Angeles County sees on average 2,200 injury truck crashes and
50 fatal truck crashes on an annual basis, by far more than any other
county in the state.*
*based on CHP statistics over 5-year period

make sure you pick an attorney who specializes in truck accident law.
