According to California Vehicle Code (CVC) Section 22107, drivers must confirm that moving from one lane to another is safe and warn nearby road users sufficiently. The at-fault party may be liable for property damages and other injuries if an accident occurs.

Occasionally, it may be challenging to identify the at-fault party. At first glance, the driver changing lanes is the most likely culprit. However, it is possible that both drivers were merging into the same lane simultaneously. In these cases, blind spots or wide turns can cause an accident rather than a lane change.

Whatever the situation, if someone you know gets injured in an improper lane change accident involving a truck, they may be able to recover damages with the help of an attorney.
