Truck Accidents in California

According to recent findings, trucking accidents in California are most commonly caused by such factors as incorrect weight distribution, driver fatigue, and high rates of speed. Truck drivers are frequently forced to drive as many miles as possible each day and the slightest bit of inattention can quickly trigger a severe collision. Moreover, the immense size and power of such vehicles drastically increase the magnitude of a sudden crash, as well.
