Pursue Justice: Truck Accident Attorneys in Los Angeles

Truck Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries, so You Need Serious Representation

Driving for up as many as 11 hours a day, long-haul truckers are in a position where even a brief loss of attention could cause a catastrophe. Truck driving is one of the most dangerous jobs: in 2018, the last year for which full statistics are available, 885 drivers died in crashes. However, that number is far for truckers than the ones they hit. Deaths among drivers, passengers, and pedestrians totaled 4,066 over the same period. Other victims suffer catastrophic injuries that leave them unable to attend work during a long period of recovery and rehabilitation.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, then you may be in serious need of full and fair compensation to help you meet your medical expenses, cover for lost time at work, and more.

Truck Accident Lawsuits May Be Complex

An accident with an 18-wheeler cannot be handled in the same manner as you would address a car accident. Because semis are driven for hire, they must carry some form of commercial insurance. The first step in filing a claim is figuring out who should be held liable.

You may be able to file a truck accident claim against:

  • a fatigued, reckless, or intoxicated trucker,
  • a trucking company that cut corners in inspections or over-loaded a truck, and/or
  • a manufacturing company that produced a faulty truck part.

Often, the insurance companies of the above parties will try to toss blame to the others because they don’t want to be stuck with the bill. They will also do all they can to prove you don’t deserve a large settlement. We advise you not to talk with any insurer but your own until you’ve contacted a lawyer to help you with negotiations.
