Rancho Cordova Big Rig Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Rancho Cordova trucking injury lawyer. Commuters travelling on westbound Highway 50 through Rancho Cordova had quite a commute time delay after a big rig crashed on Thursday, April 21, 2016.

What Happened?

According to California Department of Transportation (CalTrans), the trucking accident occurred at approximately 5:20 p.m. along Bradshaw Road. The collision blocked the number one and number two lanes of Highway 50 westbound.

Traffic in the area of the crash was backed up all the way to Mather Field. It took crews a little over 30 minutes to clear the roadway of the involved vehicles and debris.

What Caused the Big Rig to Crash?

The cause of the big rig crash is unknown. It usually takes about two weeks for a traffic collision report to be made available. If you are involved in a traffic collision with a big rig it is crucial to contact an experienced trucking injury lawyer to assist you in the process of collecting valuable accident scene evidence. This evidence is extremely important in helping to prove things like safety violations by the truck driver or company that hired the trucker, as well as the role the driver or the company played in negligently causing your injuries.

My office retains trucking experts.  We have decades of experience dealing with commercial carriers that attempt to avoid responsibility by quickly repairing their trucks, altering truck driver logbooks, and “conveniently losing” data kept in the truck’s “black box” recorder.

Collecting Critical Evidence

We recognize the necessity of moving right away to make sure that the commercial truck involved in your collision is not placed back into service so that its critical evidence disappears.
