In the majority of commercial truck crashes, the injured victim was in a car or other vehicle—not in the truck. If you’re one of those victims, an East Los Angeles truck accident lawyer can help you get the compensation you need to recover.

Accidents that involve 18-wheelers or semi-trucks almost always have life-changing effects. If you’ve been injured in a truck crash, your injuries are likely severe and you’re probably concerned about your growing medical debt. That’s not to mention your property damage and emotional trauma.

If the truck wreck wasn’t your fault, you’re probably also frustrated that you have to deal with all this stress without help. You may feel that you’ve suffered an injustice, and you likely have.

But you have options. With the help of an East Los Angeles truck accident lawyer from our chambers, you can file a successful personal injury claim that will compensate you for all of your damages.

How our lawyers help fight for your cause 

Your lawyer’s role doesn’t start and end with representing you in truck accident litigation. You can also expect your lawyer to do the following:

  • Visit you after your accident, whether you’re at home or in the hospital
  • Gather evidence identifying the parties responsible for your accident
  • Identify the people and entities whose negligence may have indirectly led to your accident
  • Determine the compensation you’re entitled to ask
  • Prepare the paperwork
  • Get in touch with the opposite parties to start negotiations
  • File your case in court, if necessary
  • Build a strong case to help you secure a settlement that satisfies your demands

It’s important to gather as many facts as possible if you’re planning to file a compensation claim in a truck accident. A truck accident lawyer from Los Angeles can shoulder the responsibility and allow you to recover from your injuries in peace.

The following are some potential causes to consider before filing a truck crash personal injury claim:
  • Inadequate Training – The driver who caused your accident might not have had the proper training or the proper license to drive such a large vehicle. This should be recorded in the police report.
  • Unrealistic Schedules – Some trucking companies reward drivers for hurrying without considering the risks involved. Carelessness of this sort can lead to accidents.
  • Unsecured Cargo –A loose load can result from a careless loading team or defective restraints. Unsecured cargo that causes an accident could incriminate a number of people, including the manufacturer of any defective parts.
  • Distracted Driving –Cell phones can distract any driver, and truck drivers are no exception. Other causes of distracted truck driving include other passengers, navigation systems, and eating and drinking.
  • Drowsy Driving – Federal regulations limit how many hours a driver can operate a truck without sleeping. The driver or trucking company can be held liable if these rules are violated.
  • Dangerous Roads – Poor road conditions and improper roadside construction sites can cause accidents. Construction companies and government agencies can be held responsible in these cases.
