Los Angeles Truck Accident Lawyers

Commercial truck accidents are one of the worst types of auto accidents a motorist can face. A commercial truck is one that is used for the transport of commercial goods: eighteen-wheel tractor trailers, tanker trucks, delivery vehicles and large freight trucks are all considered commercial trucks. A fully-loaded commercial truck can weigh up to 80,000 pounds – as compared to the 3,000 pounds a typical sedan weighs. As a result, any collision can be catastrophic to all motorists involved.

Due to the severe nature of truck accidents, the representation of an experienced and dedicated law firm is essential to ensure the party or parties responsible pay damages due.

Common Causes

There are many common causes for commercial trucking accidents, whether they are the fault of the truck driver or the driver of a car involved. Some common causes include:

  • Irresponsible driving by motorists:
    • turning or changing lanes in front of a truck
    • driving in a truck driver’s blind spot
  • Overloaded cargo bed of a truck
  • Weather and road conditions
  • Mechanical failure
  • Long hours, stress or tiredness of the truck driver
  • The limited maneuverability of commercial trucks: acceleration, deceleration/braking, or visibility

Whatever the cause, if you have been involved in a truck accident, it is imperative that you get legal counsel immediately. You may be eligible to receive compensation for physical injuries sustained, as well as any mental pain or anguish. You may be able to file a legal claim against the party or parties responsible due to negligence: their failure to exercise reasonable caution under the circumstances of the accident.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, contact our offices today.
