Eight vehicles were involved in the chain reaction accident that took hours to clear
When a semi tractor trailer overturns on a California freeway, it is unfortunately, almost inevitable that this will cause muliple other vehicles to crash. These types of chain reaction multi-vehicle collisions are all too common when it comes to truck accidents. The CHP usually does a thorough investigation in these matters and tries to determine the cause of the overturned truck. Many times, it is due to imbalanced loads, driver error, mechanical issues or other similar issues that can be traced to negligence on the part of the truck driver or the company who employed the driver. The role of a truck accident lawyer in these cases is to fully investigate these issues and determine whether legal action may lie and against whom.
