Trucks like semi-trucks, tractor trailers, or 18-wheelers cause serious accidents. Government statistics show that in 2012 25,000 people were hurt in large truck accidents. There are often special rules that apply to truck drivers and claims in California can be brought against both the truck driver and the trucking company.

Under California law, while both drivers and pedestrians must be aware that motor vehicles can cause serious injuries, drivers must use more care than pedestrians.
