Fatal Truck Accidents in Los Angeles

According to federal data, at least 11% of all traffic accident-related deaths were the result of collisions with tractor-trailers in 2008. Like anywhere else in the country, fatal truck accidents in Los Angeles are all-too-common due to the immense size and power of such large vehicles. These types of collisions are commonly caused by factors like improper loading, poor vehicle maintenance, and delayed stopping distance, and by no fault of the victims.
