Cement or concrete mixer trucks are large vehicles used on California roads and highways to transport wet concrete to construction sites. These top-heavy vehicles can weigh up to 30,000 pounds when empty and carry an additional 30,000 pounds or more of wet cement, making accidents with them devastating and potentially deadly.
Cement Truck Accidents and Personal Injury Claims
Like other personal injury claims, California law requires the plaintiff in a cement truck accident to prove that the defendant's negligent acts caused their injuries. As the plaintiff, the law requires you to confirm that:
- The defendant(s) owed you a duty of care.
- The defendant(s) breached this duty of care through their actions.
- The defendant(s) actions or acts of omission caused the cement truck accident.
- As a result of the accident, you sustained physical injuries or suffered other damages.
