Trucking Injuries

There are thousands of truck accidents each year in California, with many injuries and fatalities. When trucks are involved with accidents with cars the result can be quite devastating. Many trucking injuries are serious. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, get some assistance from an experienced attorney. Trucking injuries that are caused by the neglect of someone else may be eligible for compensation. Some of the most common reasons for trucking accidents include such things as:

  • Faulty truck equipment (lights, brakes, or mirrors)
  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving
  • Following too closely
  • Speeding

When you’ve been hurt in an accident you should consult an experienced attorney as quickly as possible. Your attorney will review your case and advise you as to how to proceed. Injuries as the result of a trucking accident may be catastrophic. In many cases injuries may be severe, requiring surgery and years of rehabilitation. When the injuries are caused by the negligence of another, you may be able to get compensation. Some of the compensation you may receive includes:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical expenses
  • Mental anguish

Your attorney will work to get your case resolved through negotiation and settlement. While most cases of this type end in settlement, should the case go to court your attorney will be prepared to present your case to get you the best resolution possible.  If a family member died as the result of a trucking injury you may receive compensation for burial expenses, future earnings, lost benefits and inheritance, and loss of companionship.
