Truck Accident Lawsuits in the Bay Area | Attorney Michael Hackard
It doesn’t take much driving experience to see that the Bay Area has some of the most dangerous roads in Northern California.
One study says that Interstate 280 is the riskiest place to drive at any time of the day. The San Mateo Bridge can be a disaster. Highway 101 has more traffic in all directions and a higher number of collisions than 280.
Major Bay Area truck routes go through cities that have heavy passenger vehicle traffic congestion. This is a dangerous mix with a high number of accidents. A passenger car weighing 5,000 lbs., is no match for an average semi truck with a loaded trailer weighing 80,000 lbs.
I handled my first catastrophic injury 18-wheeler truck case over 40 years ago. Times have changed. There are more trucks and more crashes – some 500,000 trucking accidents per year in the United States – over 5,000 of these resulting in death.
If you or a loved one were hit by a large commercial truck or 18-wheeler, contact Hackard Law for help.
