Liability In Semi-Truck Accidents
A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 lbs. It is imperative that truck drivers maintain a safe speed. A number of very serious accidents take place when drivers make unsafe 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.” Victims of car accidents may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
