The northern San Fernando Valley in Southern California is home to one of the oldest neighborhoods in the entire City of Los Angeles – a community known as Pacoima.
Although written history in Pacoima dates back to the late 1760’s and the later founding of Mission San Fernando Rey in 1771, the city is perhaps most well-known historically as the site of the Pacoima aircraft accident in the late 1950’s, when an aircraft experienced a mid-air collision and crashed into a local schoolyard, killing seven and injuring 75.
Bordered by the districts of Arleta, Mission Hills, Sun Valley, Lake View Terrace and San Fernando, Pacoima is among the smaller communities in the Los Angeles area, measuring roughly seven square miles along the Interstate 5 corridor.
Due to its location along the busy I-5 transit corridor, Pacoima residents travelling on the increasingly congested roadways face a number of risks when navigating the area, including the risk for collision with large trucks or tractor-trailers.
Truck Accidents in Pacoima
Each year, truck accidents claim upwards of two thousand lives across the country. Whether a truck loses one of its wheels and careens out of control, or a sleep-deprived driver collides with another vehicle, truck accidents have the ability to cause significant, if not devastating, damage.
Typically, large trucks or tractor-trailers are loaded with many tons of cargo. As a result, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has set stringent guidelines regarding truck drivers, drive times, sleep requirements and active hours, in an effort to avoid carelessness or other negligence caused by exhaustion while behind the wheel.
Unfortunately, accidents do happen. And while it is not uncommon for truck accidents to occur on high-speed freeways or other busy networks of road, the most common truck accidents occur in urban traffic. For example, when a truck’s rear wheels run up over a curb while making a turn, it can potentially strike pedestrians or other vehicles that are immediately nearby.
If you or someone you love has been involved in a truck-related accident and is dealing with the many challenges of personal injury, know that you are not alone. In Pacoima and other areas of Los Angeles, there are personal injury attorneys who can assist with the filing and pursuit of a personal injury claim in court, which can help combat the financial challenges that come with this type of injury.
