Liability In Box Truck Accidents
All box truck drivers are expected to operate their vehicles according to the prevailing conditions. According to California Vehicle Code 22350, “No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.”
Fatigue is the number one cause of truck accidents. Drivers can work as much as 14 hours in a day and they can get naturally tired like everyone else.

Any person that is injured may have the ability to recover damages through a personal injury claim.
