Liability In Semi-Truck Accidents
Truck drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and obey the rules of the road. Many motorcyclists are hit because truck drivers 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.”
Any person that is injured in a semi-truck accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Truck accident victims are far too often left with very serious injuries and high medical bills. Damages in civil claim can help a victim recover money for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A truck accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your options are.
