Reasons Truck Accidents Happen

Reasons Truck Accidents Happen

I’m Ed Smith, a truck accident lawyer in Stockton. Stockton residents may be seeing a surge in the number of large trucks on the road, as well as the rest of the state. Because the economy has been improving, along with manufacturing, it has increased the demand for vehicles to haul freight. In 2017, the demand for Class 8 vehicles, the heaviest trucks on the road, rose 59 percent. While this is positive news for business, it means more trucks on the road. That can translate into more danger.
