The weight advantages (even when empty) trucks have over passenger vehicles is more than enough to create death, if not serious bodily injury.
Compass Law Group, PC, a full-service accident firm featuring Los Angeles truck accident attorneys with significant trial experience, know firsthand the damage big rigs have done to cars on California interstates, highways, even while passing through town. Box trucks, tow trucks, you name it – accidents have occurred where one or more passenger vehicles were battered due to another driver’s negligent handling of their truck.
We fight for L.A. County victims’ rights, and always take each case with the expectation that we’ll recover every penny our victims deserve, period. Because we refuse to charge accident victims for case evaluations, or making them pay for cases that haven’t settled, we can let hurt people repair themselves while we quickly establish, and bring to action, culpable parties.
Although legal experts concur that California and federal truck laws are lax at best, they’re also impartial. Courts can easily throw out cases sloppily concocted simply to draw a jury’s ire. In other words, for Los Angeles truck accident attorneys to build strong cases for their clients, a certain standard of proof must be followed.
Now, let’s discuss the distinction between ‘truck’ and ‘trailer’.
Semis that aren’t pulling trailers travel down the road usually toward their next pickup. Rarely do they drive for leisurely purposes as company rules prohibit such. When semis without trailers wreck, the driver and company are going to be at fault. So, what happens when semis from one company pickup trailers from another company?
Should semis from company ‘A’ pull boxes from logistics company ‘B’, then fishtail into one or several cars, now there’s potentially three at-fault parties. We say ‘potentially’ because proving there was something structurally wrong with the box wheels or axles would constitute probable cause for our Los Angeles truck accident attorneys to join the company loaning the trailer into our accident suit.
If you’ve been injured because a negligent semi-truck driver slammed into your car, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. There are mountains of evidence we must collect to defend your case. We must prove drivers weren’t recklessly passing or performing other detrimental actions which caused the semi to wreck into them. While it may seem unfair to put victims on trial before settling their cases, we must prove our clients weren’t at fault.
Victims will have medical bills, lost wages, a wrecked vehicle to fix and other expenses resulting from a truck driver’s reckless actions. If you’re on our site, you’re probably scared and unsure what to do.
This list isn’t all-inclusive; many personal injury suits have been raised based on different factors that aren’t included above. Our team of Los Angeles car accident attorneys can work on cases without anything out of pocket.
We’re old enough to have the necessary experience, yet young enough to use the most cutting-edge technology and tactics, and are determined enough to fight and outsmart the other side, every time.
Hiring the right personal injury attorney can often make the difference between getting the maximum settlement to account for your medical care, damages and lost wages or getting short changed or even having your case dismissed completely.
