Sacramento, CA (April 22, 2024) – On Monday morning, two vehicles were engulfed in flames on a bridge in the Sacramento area due to a chain-reaction collision.

The accident was initially reported shortly after 7:30 a.m. on the West Sacramento Bryte Bend Bridge. According to California Highway Patrol, four vehicles were involved in the collision. Officers believe a chain-reaction rear-end collision occurred when a semi-truck collided with another driver. Fire departments arrived promptly at the location and extinguished the blaze as EMTs assessed the victims.

Truck Accidents in Sacramento

Serious truck accident injuries, such as serious brain damage and spinal cord injuries, may be lifelong. Unfortunately, it might be difficult to ascertain your compensation and get a settlement in the aftermath, even if you are entitled to past and future damages for your injuries.

Due to the involvement of trucking firms, who possess the most important piece of evidence—the truck—these accidents can get complicated. Additionally, these businesses possess a lot more resources than an average driver. A Sacramento truck accident lawyer can provide impartial counsel in your case by placing you on a level playing field with the biggest trucking corporations.

A skilled Sacramento truck accident attorney is necessary to guarantee a favorable result in these particularly complicated truck-related cases. Commercial vehicle accidents often result in deaths and severely injured people, and thus, litigation involving these kinds of incidents can become quite complex. Moreover, a truck driver is legally “on the job” while operating a vehicle, and as such, a number of additional considerations are involved that are not present in a normal auto accident case.
