A neighborhood situated in the northwest end of the San Fernando Valley in the Los Angeles metropolitan area of Southern California, Chatsworth is the home to the former Chatsworth Reservoir, the Santa Susana Field Laboratory, and many popular businesses. According to the 2000 U.S. census, around 35,073 people were residing in the 15.24-square-mile Chatsworth neighborhood, making it the smallest region in terms of population densities for both the city and the county of Los Angeles.
With millions of commercial trucks driving over the national transportation network every year to move goods, truck accidents and crashes are inevitable, as people in smaller cars and motorcycles have to share the congested highways with these big vehicles. The safety of motorists is jeopardized more on freeways with their high volumes of trucks.
An accident involving big rigs, semis, semi-trailer trucks, tractor trailers or 18-wheelers can result in catastrophic injury and event death. The huge weight and size of these trucks are keys reasons for the destruction caused by truck accidents. As per the California Vehicle Code, a passenger vehicle is about 4,000 lbs or less on an average, while a big rig can weigh up to 80,000 lbs. The destructive results from collisions involving such vehicles of such different sizes is obvious.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (2010), small vehicle passengers had a much higher threat of death during truck accidents as compared to the occupants of the involved trucks. In fact, 97 percent of all deaths in truck accidents involving a passenger vehicle were of the occupants of the smaller passenger vehicle.
There’s no doubt that a truck collision is highly destructive as larger, heavier trucks take much more time to stop than smaller, lighter passenger cars, resulting in catastrophic rear-end accidents. Apart from the physical injuries, the emotional trauma that the victims involved and their families go through can be really tough to handle. However, with a compassionate and sympathetic truck accident personal injury lawyer by your side, you can rest assured that your rights will be protected against large insurers with their army of trained adjusters and investigators, and everything possible will be done to assist you in this legal process so you receive the advice, help and result you deserve
