Commercial trucking is a vital component of a thriving economy, and there are more big trucks on California’s roadways than ever before. Trucks require more room to maneuver and more time to stop when traveling at highway speeds than passenger vehicles. This can make safely sharing the road challenging. The team at Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP often represent clients who sustained injuries in an accident involving a semi-truck.
Motor vehicle accidents happen at all times of the day and they can be especially likely to take place during the night as well. There are certain times when drivers should be especially cautious on the road and in this post, we will examine why driving in the early morning hours can be so dangerous.

Many parents in California prefer to pick their kids up from school. However, conflicting work schedules and long hours can make this impossible.
