Truck Accident Litigation Lawyers In Perris California

Perris is a city in Riverside County, California, USA. At the 2000 census, the city population was 46,600. The city is named in honor of Fred T. Perris, chief engineer of the California Southern Railroad. The California Southern was built through the future town site in 1882 to build a rail connection between the present day cities of Barstow and San Diego. Due to a land title dispute at Pinacate, most of its citizens moved two miles north on the railroad and established Perris in 1885. The city was incorporated in 1911. Perris now incorporates Pinacate Station which is the home of the Orange Empire Railway Museum (a.k. a "the trolley museum") - the largest operating museum of its kind on the West Coast of the United States. On March 20, 2007, Perris was featured on ABC's Nightline news show during its "Realty Check" segment. The story dealt with the rising trend of home foreclosures in Riverside County, and Perris was referred to as the "epicenter". The story then dealt primarily with the city of Perris. The "Farmer Boys" restaurant chain was started in Perris in 1981. Perris is also known for the Rock Castle house set on a hill above town.

What is truck accident litigation?

A trucking accident occurs when big rigs or semi trucks collide with other vehicles or pedestrians. Due to the large size of trucks, an accident can greatly endanger the lives of other smaller vehicles. Common causes of truck accidents include driver fatigue, speeding, disobeying safety procedures, repair and maintenance failure among others. People who are injured in truck accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
