California Truck Accident Attorneys
Involvement in an incident with a commercial or semi-truck is an experience that can leave you seriously injured and in a state of shock. Semi-trucks are extremely common all across California and the rest of the United States, and consequently, trucking-related accidents in California are a common occurrence.
Due to the size and power of commercial semis, being involved in an accident with one is not only terrifying but also highly dangerous. Since 2009, California has averaged over 250 truck-related fatalities per year.
Whether you’re a trucker, driver, or pedestrian who has been involved in a California trucking incident, it’s critically important that you understand your legal rights and available compensation.
Why Hire a Truck Accident Attorney?
When choosing a California truck crash attorney, experience and knowledge truly matter. A personal injury lawyer who doesn’t have specific experience in litigating against trucking companies won’t have the means to get you the full and proper damages that you deserve.
Truck accident lawsuits are not in the same realm as car accidents. Typically, in a car accident, only the driver of the vehicle responsible, and the victims are involved. However, crashes that involve semi or commercial trucks will include a number of different parties. These may include the truck driver, truck owner, truck manufacturer, and the owner of the goods that were being transported. Issues such as cargo falling from the truck, improper maintenance performed by the truck company or owner, and different legal regulations for truck drivers and companies, meaning that there is often a multitude of parties involved in these claims.
Trucking companies will also be well prepared to defend themselves from costly lawsuits. They will do everything in their power to get cases dismissed or limit any judgments against them. For these reasons, it’s important that you are protected by an attorney who is experienced in preparing and winning cases against trucking companies.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents in California
California truck crashes are becoming a more common occurrence as we see an increase in the number of semi-trucks and commercial tractor-trailers on the roads. Unfortunately, trucks and their drivers are prone to just as many issues that lead to accidents as other, smaller automobiles. In fact, their sheer size makes them vulnerable to additional problems and often leads to more dangerous accidents than those involving standard size vehicles.
