Los Angeles Semi Truck Accident Attorney Serving All of California - specialiing in accidents and personal injuries.The number of large trucks traveling on highways is increasing every year. Because trucking companies and truck drivers are motivated by profit, safety concerns often diminish, and other drivers suffer the consequences. This is true for any truck accident or truck crash involving a semi truck, 18-wheeler, big rig, or even the neighborhood garbage truck.

Despite rules enacted by the Department of Transportation, truck drivers often drive too many hours without the proper amount of sleep. To get around these regulations, some truck drivers falsify travel logs and fail to properly maintain their trucks and trailers.
