Los Angeles is a huge transit space for thousands of local and long distance trucks. Whether it’s a commercial load or residential household goods moving company, the trucks vary from 12 feet all the way to 51 feet long. Logistics has always been a part of big cities and their conjunctions.
As the practice shows, unfortunately these truck drivers are exposed to the same amount of risk daily and don’t always make it safely to their destination. Some of them end up being involved in major accidents that leave the drivers with serious and life-altering injuries. According to the statistics approximately 150,000 people are injured in truck accidents in the United States. Because of the weight and size of such vehicles it most likely means that the sustained injuries will be extremely traumatic.
