Truck Accident Attorneys


When a truck collides with a passenger car, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian, severe injuries and death often result. Truck accidents are most often caused by the negligence of the truck driver, the trucking company, or the manufacturer of the vehicle’s parts.

There are strict federal guidelines regarding the amount of time truckers are allowed to operate their vehicles without resting. Pressure to deliver goods on time and make more money often leads drivers to ignore these rules. Some employers encourage truckers to drive while fatigued, putting everyone on the road at risk. Other times the truck has a faulty part, or has not been maintained properly. Often, all it takes is for a semi-truck to be loaded with cargo incorrectly to have its balance thrown off, resulting in a catastrophic accident.

No matter the circumstances, the innocent victims who are injured by the negligence of another have the legal right to pursue compensation for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and more.

However, it can be difficult to determine exactly who is at fault after a trucking accident.

While most big rigs are equipped with data recorders that provide critical information after accidents, this equipment can mysteriously go missing after a crash.

Gathering evidence after a truck accident is critical to getting the compensation you and your family deserve. Contact an attorney as soon as possible after a trucking accident so that data can be recovered and the trucks can be inspected. Otherwise, valuable evidence may be lost.

Personal Injury FAQ

Why do I need an attorney?

Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side following your accident can be the difference between receiving fair compensation and receiving nothing. Our attorneys will do their best to ensure that you are taken care of financially by helping you obtain compensation for  your medical expenses and lost wages. Our attorneys will work diligently to ensure all evidence is properly gathered and used to support your claim.

How soon after I am injured do I have to file a lawsuit?

In California, an accident victim has two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. If a governmental entity is a cause of your injuries, you may have to file a claim with the appropriate governmental entity within six months. Then you will have to file a lawsuit in a certain amount of time, depending on how the entity responds to the claim. These are strict time periods. If they are not adhered to, you will not be able to recover damages for your injuries. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to make sure you do not lose the ability to bring your claim, and to start gathering evidence as soon as possible.

What if I was also responsible for my injury?

California personal injury victims are entitled to recover compensation from any liable party, even if they are partially to blame for the accident. California law follows the theory of comparative fault, which means that you can recover compensation for an accident, but your award will be reduced by your own degree of negligence.

Should I accept an offer from the at-fault party’s insurance company?

When you suffer a serious injury, you will most likely be contacted by the at-fault party’s insurance company. They will try to get you to accept a low settlement offer. They may even attempt to use things you say after an accident to deny your claims. An experienced injury attorney will be able to help you deal with insurance companies and help ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

How do you determine the value of my claim?

When determining the value of your claim the court will take into consideration multiple factors: medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Working with an experienced personal injury attorney will help give you the best chance of maximizing your recovery.
