Recover Compensation After A Truck Accident

Southern California residents who travel along the numerous freeways and highways are likely accustomed to seeing and sharing the road with large semi trucks. From delivery trucks to 18 wheelers, today's commercial trucks are bigger and more abundant than ever, as are the demands placed upon truck drivers which can compromise safety.

While there is no denying the important role that commercial trucks play within our economy, there's also no denying the inherent dangers they pose to drivers and passengers of smaller motor vehicles. From broken bones and damage to internal organs to traumatic brain and spinal injuries, every year truck accidents destroy the lives and futures of thousands of California residents. If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a truck accident, you need an attorney on your side who will fight to recover the compensation you need and deserve.

Despite Regulations, Truck Accidents Are Common

The trucking industry is highly regulated, and there are strict restrictions that dictate everything from the number of hours truckers are allowed to be behind the wheel to the size and weight of the cargo they carry. Despite these safety measures, crashes and collisions involving commercial trucks are fairly common and those impacted often suffer significant and life-altering injuries and losses.

If you suffered injuries in a truck accident where a truck driver was speeding, tailgating, distracted or overly fatigued, we take swift and decisive action to investigate any and all contributing causes and to hold responsible parties accountable. In some cases, the driving errors of an individual truck driver can be traced back to his or her employer and a failure to enforce safety regulations or to do proper maintenance on the truck. Under these circumstances, legal action may be taken against both the individual truck driver and the trucking company.
