We also partner with trusted medical professionals to ensure we have a comprehensive understanding of your injuries and the time frame for your recovery.

What Caused the Accident That Injured You?

Highways and freeways cross California and are well-traveled by semitrucks, commercial vehicles and private drivers. When these trucks cause an accident, the results can be life-changing. Truck accidents can be caused by any of the several factors, including:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Poorly trained drivers
  • Defective safety equipment
  • Tire blowouts
  • Speeding
  • Failing to clear a space before changing lanes
  • Failure to properly judge truck size when turning a corner
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving

It is important to remember that a trucking company will immediately dispatch insurance adjusters and its own attorneys to the scene of an accident to begin preparing a case. You have every right to hire an experienced lawyer to protect yourself.
