El Monte truck accident injury victims can be left with deadly physical injuries and suffer extreme emotional distress, sometimes resulting in wrongful death claims. In order to avoid any physical or emotional injuries, truck drivers must be well prepared to handle dangerous road conditions and have sufficient training to lower the odds of a truck collision, especially if the truck drivers are driving big rigs. Some factors that lead to truck accidents include the following:

  • Icy roads that cause trucks and other vehicles to slide and spin
  • Cars improperly merging into traffic and not giving sufficient time for a truck to brake or maneuver out of the way
  • Truck's brakes giving out and causing the truck to collide into another vehicle on the highway or street
Ways to Avoid Getting Into an Accident: Tip #5 Check Your Tire Pressure Each Time You go to get Gas for Your Vehicle

Checking for tires is something that should be done at least once a week, yet many drivers fail to do so. People forget to check their tires or just disregard the process and assume their tires are in good shape. However, it is very important to check the tires to avoid a flat tire situation. A tire becoming flat or exploding on the road can cause a vehicle to suddenly swerve or even spin if the driver is not fully focused or improperly uses the brakes. A truck driver needs to check the tire pressure on the truck because the truck will create a greater impact if it were to swerve into other vehicles, potentially causing major injuries and leaving victims of its aftermath in critical conditions. To check your tires, you need a tire air pressure gauge. Bring the gauge into the tire valve stem to see the pressure or the PSI level. Smaller cars usually require a level between 30-40 PSI, while larger vehicles and trucks require around a 45 PSI. Once you determine the level, then you can use an air pump that is located in a gas station to put air into the tires and reach the correct air level. This process will lower the likelihood of an accident resulting from a tire malfunction.

You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
