Another Vehicular Accident in California freeway

Another vehicular accident, particularly one involving a big truck, happened in one of California’s freeways just a couple of days ago.

The accident was reported to have occurred on the I-5 Freeway. It involved a big rig truck and an SUV near the San Clemente State Beach. The SUV was the first vehicle to figure in an accident when the truck struck it causing the latter to rollover several times.

The big truck was then reportedly carrying 60,000 pounds of food cargo.

When the two vehicles collide, both the SUV and the truck caught fire. The truck driver was airlifted to a hospital. The SUV driver was lucky to be uninjured.

Vehicular accident, such as this one, is one of the common sources of personal bodily injuries and deaths in the US.

In California freeways in particular, it is very common to see accidents involving large trucks.

For those who are involved, one thing I could suggest is to go after whosoever is responsible for the damage. Under the law, they may sue the driver, or the owner or anyone which contributed to the accident.

They may recover damages by hiring a competent car accident or personal injury lawyer. In doing so, they may realize that they can get a lot more than to grab hasty settlements from insurance companies.

A good accident lawyer is the key.

In the US, there are more than 6 million car accidents and from that figure, 42,642 lost their lives.

One person dies every 13 minutes or 115 each day. Others suffer bodily injury which range from temporary to permanent injuries.
