Liability In Semi-Truck Accidents
Semi-truck drivers have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner. Trucks tend to have very large blind spots. A number of accidents happen when truck drivers are speeding or make dangerous lane changes. According to California Vehicle Code 22107, “No person shall turn a vehicle from a direct course or move right or left upon a roadway until such movement can be made with reasonable safety and then only after the giving of an appropriate signal in the manner provided in this chapter in the event any other vehicle may be affected by the movement.” The family of any victim that died in a truck accident may have legal recourse through California Code of Civil Procedure 377.60.
