Granada Hills truck accident injury victims can suffer from minor or severe injuries that sometimes result in wrongful death claims. Truck drivers must take measures to avert potential truck collisions, such as receiving adequate sleep before getting on the road and having rigorous training to become accustomed to how their trucks work. Truck drivers must also be in a calm state of mind so that they can make the best decisions during their drive and use their best judgments to reduce the chances of an accident from occurring. Several causes of a truck crash are:

  • Truck or car driver being intoxicated from drinking alcohol
  • Poor visibility from heavy snowfall
  • Truck's brakes malfunction, preventing the driver from decelerating when necessary
Ways to Evade Being in an Accident: Tip #6- Restore Yellowed Headlight Lenses, to Brighten Headlights for Night Driving

Many dangerous accidents that lead to fatal injuries happen at night and part of the reason is because there is lower vision in the dark. A vehicle's headlights are very important in helping drivers see their route, especially in roads lacking lights, because the headlights alert another driver on a smaller road of oncoming traffic and allow others on the road to recognize nearby vehicles. Therefore, it is a necessity to have your headlights working properly and to have them be bright. Over time, the headlights become yellow and lose their brightness, which can be very risky by making it more difficult for others to see your vehicle and this increases the possibility of collisions. Once you notice your vehicle's headlights are not as bright or do not show much of the road, you can either manually wash the lights with soap and use products from the stores or have a local body shop mask and spray the headlights with a plastic adhesion promoter.

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.
