Glendora Truck Accident Lawyer
The faster an object moves, the harder it is for it to stop. But the size of the object also impacts how easy or difficult it is for it to stop. Did you know that it takes a large truck approximately 40% longer to stop than an average car? Factors such as weather, the weight of the vehicle, maintenance, and degree of stress, distress and physical alertness of driver all play additional roles. The Los Angeles personal injury lawyers of Ellis Law are all too familiar with the hazards these vehicles present on California roadways.
The perils of truck driving

Empty tractor trailers in excess of 50′ weigh in excess of 30,000 pounds. The weight of the average automobile is around 4,000 pounds. The numbers tell a compelling story. There is no denying the level of devastation and utter destruction the impact, when combined with velocity, can produce.
