Truck Accidents Involving Large Trucks, Tractor-Trailers, 18-Wheelers Serious
Truck accidents wreak havoc on Southern California’s often-congested highways. But you can just as easily be involved in a serious truck accident on a quiet side street in Huntington Beach or Newport Beach, California.
On average, one out of nine traffic fatalities are caused by collisions with a large truck (trucks that weigh more than 10,000 pounds), according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. In 2009, a total of 295,900 large trucks were involved in accidents, resulting in 503 fatalities and 17,000 injuries. In California, 36 people were killed in accidents involving large trucks in 2009. More recently, 42 died in motor vehicle accidents involving large trucks in 2011.
Such truck accident statistics might not mean much to many people – until they become a victim of a serious truck accident themselves. Don’t try to handle your truck accident on your own.

Truck accident causes cover a wide range. From sleepy truckers to truck drivers texting behind the wheel of 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tanker trucks or delivery trucks, many factors can come into play in any accident. Several insurance companies are also often involved in trucking accidents. There could be one for the company that owns the truck, another for the truck driver, the owner of the trailer and the owner of the cab. Don’t try to deal with four different insurance companies on your own. That’s why it’s crucial you have attorney Rapillo working with you to review the details of your case to make sure you leave no stone unturned.
