Transportation and trucking accidents have a variety of causes

Traffic accidents do not stop for Christmas or any other holidays. In addition, transportation and trucking accidents contain factual configurations that are endlessly different from day to day. For example, on this past Christmas Day, an electrician's F-350 work truck went off the southbound lane of Highway 99 in Madera, crashed through a foot-wide concrete wall protecting a rock business, took down a chain fence and crashed onto the property, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Potential for new law mandating truck side guards

Have you ever thought about the mechanics of a collision between a car and a tractor-trailer? It's a gruesome thing to consider. Frequently, it plays out like this: a car crashes into a large truck from the side. Because the truck has considerably more ground clearance than a car, the car slides underneath the truck, slicing off the top of the car and often severely injuring or decapitating its passengers.
