Liability In Semi-Truck Accidents
Semi-trucks can weigh over 80,000 lbs and are difficult to maneuver. Truck drivers must operate their vehicles according to prevailing conditions in order to prevent accidents. 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.”
A number of state and federal regulations limit semi-trucks to 55 mph on the freeway. Any person that is injured in a semi-truck accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. If they were working at the time of the accident they may also be entitled to worker’s compensation.
