Injury and Wrongful Death Attorney
Fullerton California is home to some of the heaviest travelled truck routes in all of southern California. The resulting volume of trucks and commercial vehicles leads to a higher number of truck accidents that result in serious or fatal injuries to those that share the road. Fullerton is bordered by I-5, as well as the 91 (Riverside Freeway) and the 57 (Orange Freeway). Traffic patterns are dense on these freeways, and the nature of sudden slowing or stops in traffic after periods of higher speeds leads to multiple accidents.
The 91 freeway connects Los Angeles and its suburbs to Riverside and the inland empire. It is a busy connector that carries a lot of commercial traffic. It serves as a major freight connector between the Port of Long Beach and is an alternative route to the I-10 freeway connecting the LA area to Arizona, and states to the East of California. Fullerton is at an important cross-roads, and as a result has to deal with a heavy volume of truck traffic and resulting accidents.
Trucks on the 91 and 57 may not be driven by local drivers, and they may not be used to the sudden stops we experience in and around Fullerton. Trucks take a lot longer to slow from higher speeds, and the resulting momentum leads to heavy impacts that result in serious or fatal injuries to other drivers and their passengers.
Truck Accidents Result in Serious Injuries and Wrongful Death
Victims of truck accidents often unfortunately suffer severe injuries to their head, neck, spine and internal organs. These injuries can result in permanent disability or paralysis and in some cases fatal outcomes. Fatal truck accidents in California result in wrongful death actions against the owner of the truck or commercial vehicle, as well as the insurance company or companies who insure the truck as well as the business itself.
