Semi Truck Speeding Accidents In California

Big rig trucks must be driven and handled differently from passenger vehicles. Understanding the proper way to operate a big rig truck is part of professional truck drivers' responsibilities. Trucks require a greater stopping distance and, as a result, speeding is a dangerous act of negligence.

At Rosenthal & Kreeger LLP in Roseville, California, our team has more than 25 years of experience representing victims of truck accidents. Our legal team represents truck accident victims and their families. We pursue the full compensation our clients are entitled to for damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Speeding Is Extremely Negligent

When not operated properly, a big rig truck is a multiton weapon capable of causing catastrophic injuries and changing the lives of innocent drivers and their families forever. For example, it can take well over 500 feet for a truck to come to a complete stop, depending on the load and the condition of the pavement. Speeding opens the door for the possibility of not stopping in time and colliding with other vehicles.

A rear-end collision caused by speeding can also result in an override truck accident, which can cause immense damage. The bottom line is that when truck drivers speed, they place people at risk and deserve to be held accountable for the consequences of their actions. Our team thoroughly investigates the circumstances of truck accidents; we will do everything in our power to obtain compensation from all liable sources.
