Of all traffic-related accidents
Of all traffic-related accidents, those involving large trucks are often the most serious – to the occupants of other vehicles rather than the truck. At Accident Lawyers, we are dedicated to helping victims of truck accidents throughout the Los Angeles area in taking legal action against negligent truck drivers and trucking companies who have caused their injuries.
With over 35 years of collective attorney experience and an unrelenting commitment to preserving our clients’ rights and futures, our legal team is here to offer you the level of legal counsel you deserve.
After a truck accident
After a truck accident, a victim may have the right to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim against whatever party was responsible for causing the collision to occur in the first place. Liability in a truck accident case most often stems from negligent conduct, such as a distracted or inexperienced driver. However, it may also stem from intentional misconduct.
By proving the other party caused the accident and therefore one’s injuries, the victim of a truck accident may be able to seek financial compensation from the responsible party for a number of items: medical expenses, lost wages, future lost earnings, future medical treatment, property damage, emotional trauma, and possibly much more. The value of a specific insurance claim or lawsuit will vary on a case by case basis.
Causes of Los Angeles Truck Accidents
There may be a number of different situations that will end up leading to a truck accident, and an important part of recovering financial compensation for your claim will be determining what caused your collision. The leading causes of truck accidents include various forms of driver negligence, such as speeding or drunk driving. Driving while distracted is also a primary cause, as it only takes a moment for an accident to occur while a driver adjusts the radio, makes a phone call or responds to a text message.
We handle cases related to driver negligence as well as those involving wrongdoing on the part of the trucking company for an overloaded truck or improperly balanced load. We can also assist those who have been injured in truck accidents caused by defective or poorly maintained truck or auto parts. Click here to read more about the causes of truck accidents.
