Downey Truck Accident Attorney

Commercial Truck Crash Lawyer Downey

We live in and around one of the busiest places in the country. Downey is a wonderful and diverse place to live but contending with the traffic can be a hassle. The last thing you want to think about when you hit the road is getting into an accident with a large truck. While we recognize that these trucks are usually safe, there are times when a truck driver’s careless behavior or mechanical problem with the truck can cause serious harm.

If you need a truck accident attorney, contact the Compass Law Group today. We will make sure that you are not tossed aside by the insurance companies. You deserve compensation for your damages and injuries.

What Kind Of Trucks?

When we talk about big trucks, we mean the large ones you see that are outperforming vital functions in our economy.

  • Eighteen-wheelers
  • Delivery trucks
  • Garbage trucks
  • Cement trucks
  • Logging trucks
  • And more

Without large commercial trucks, our economy could not function.

But are they safe?

Most of the time they are, but if something goes wrong, these trucks become large and deadly weapons. There are around 15.5 million tractor-trailers that operate in the US. Add that number to the other types of trucks we discussed, and you have plenty of potential for accidents.

Most of these trucks are owned by large companies, while others are owner-operator trucks. Regardless of who owns the trucks, they should be inspected and maintained regularly. If anything goes wrong with a vehicle this size, there could be major problems on the roadway. If the brakes fail, the driver could harm so many people around the truck. Tire blowouts can lead to the driver losing control.

It is so important for the owners of these trucks to make sure their fleet is well maintained.

Each driver should have their commercial driver’s license and should be trained on the truck they drive. There are the strict state and federal laws that regulate how many hours a driver can operate each day. If a driver violates these laws and causes an accident, they should be held accountable.

If a driver is operating impaired by drugs or alcohol or distracted by their phones, they are putting lives in jeopardy.

The Injuries

These trucks weigh tens of thousands of pounds and can cause a mass casualty event if they crash. Injuries from these accidents can be severe, leaving victims with major medical bills and long recovery times.

Moving Forward

Any accident is scary and confusing, but accidents involving large trucks can be devastating. In the aftermath of the initial emergency, make sure you keep all police reports and medical records. If you are injured due to a truck driver or truck company’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated fairly. At the Compass Law Group, our personal injury attorney will work to ensure you get compensated fairly for your damages and injuries. Let us handle the hard work while you heal.
