Milk Truck Tanker Overturns on Freeway Causing Injuries

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Truck Accident

Traveling down the highway is the fastest and easiest way to get places. We expect everyone to be following the rules of the road to make sure everyone gets where they need to go safely. But sometimes tragedy strikes, and a truck getting losing control can cause great harm and injury. At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, our truck accident lawyer want to discuss a recent truck accident in Los Angeles that ended in injuries.

What happened in this Los Angeles truck accident?

In November 2020, a milk truck overturned on the 5 Freeway, causing traffic delays and injuries to both the truck driver and a driver of another vehicle. According to police, the tanker truck flipped onto its side around 6 AM. This blocked traffic completely on the southbound lane for hours.

The truck driver made an unsafe turn, which put the trailer on its side. Luckily, there were not many injuries or even a fatality, but a simple error and judgment could easily have ended someone’s life.

The truck driver only suffered lacerations on his face and was transported to a nearby hospital. Luckily this happened when traffic was just beginning on the 5. This truck could have overturned and, due to its weight, could have killed other drivers and their passengers. Any truck accident needs to be investigated because many people do not leave a truck accident without injury—quite the opposite—they usually ruin lives and cause heartache and anguish in the victim’s loved ones.

Truck Accidents Create Numerous Struggles

At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, our Los Angeles truck accident attorneys find responsible parties acting irresponsibly that endanger drivers, especially when they are in a truck accident.

The victim and family members of a truck accident have to deal with problems such as:

  • Unable to keep up with mortgage and rent payments
  • Getting other forms of transportation
  • Sudden unemployment
  • Unforeseen legal and medical bills
  • Emotional and physical trauma
  • Loss of stability in the home

A truck accident is usually debilitating and severe for the driver and passenger and rarely does insurance cover all of the damage. The bills quickly pile up, and being employed is a huge challenge. We want you to contact us as soon as possible to get you back on your feet and help you with the burden you are under.
