Trucks can be more than dangerous on the road, they can be fatal. Trucks, semi-truck, 18 wheelers, trash trucks, oil tankers, are all different types of trucks that deliver goods across country. In the Bay Area, there are thousands of trucks that are on the roads every day. Getting in an accident with a truck of any size, usually is not a positive outcome for the other parties involved. The chances of surviving an accident that involved a big truck is very slim. However, our truck accident attorneys have successfully represented truck accident victims and their families against big insurance companies.
