Skilled Legal Assistance For Truck Accidents In California

Some of the most devastating motor vehicle accidents involve commercial vehicles. The size, weight and the freight they carry present greater hazards on the road than the average passenger vehicle. As a result, trucking companies are subject to strict industry regulations designed to promote safety on the road, but not all employers and employees adhere to these regulations. When they fail, serious injuries can result.

Proving Negligence In Truck Accident Claims

Every personal injury claim needs to present thorough evidence of:

  • The injury and damages: Medical records that demonstrate what physical impairments the victim has suffered as well as evidence of the ongoing financial and medical hardships he or she may face as a result of the accident.
  • Negligence: Proof that the at-fault party was negligent, meaning he or she failed to take reasonable caution or adhere to mandatory safety precautions, ultimately leading to an accident.
  • Causation: Evidence that the injury is directly connected to the at-fault party's negligence.

One of the biggest barriers to recovery in trucking accident cases is gathering information that proves the truck driver or trucking company was negligent. The at-fault party's insurance company has the legal and financial resources to aggressively fight back and limit liability.

We know how to gather evidence about the driver's impairment (driver fatigue), the trucking company's noncompliance with safety regulations (overworking a driver), the company's failure to properly strap down freight or other issues that may have caused your accident.
