A Monterey big rig accident on Highway 101 resulted in minor injuries, as well as major delays. The California truck accident occurred early Friday morning near Espinoza Road.
If you have been injured in a truck accident, contact a California truck accident lawyer immediately to protect your rights and begin investigating the factors involved.
Here, a truck loaded with thousands of pounds of vegetables overturned, leading to one highway lane being closed while crews clean up the site. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
While no one was seriously injured in this big rig accident, it is important to keep in mind the potential for danger when trucks lose control. Because of the sheer magnitude of force behind an 18-wheeler, when a big rig loses traction on a slippery road, or its brakes fails on a decline, or its driver has to maneuver quickly to avoid colliding with another vehicle, serious and even fatal injuries can occur.
Those injured in trucking accidents may suffer significant harm, including physical and emotional injuries and pain and suffering. While sometimes truck driver error is to blame for an accident, many times other factors such as defective parts, roadway conditions or employer demands may be responsible.
