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 your rights.
