The Legal Skill You Need After A Serious Truck Accident
Southern California has more than its share of truck traffic, and the problem is only getting worse. In addition to the endless line of trucks coming inland from the Port of Los Angeles, package delivery from online retailers is more popular than ever before. Trucks are driving through every residential neighborhood as well as our highways and city streets.
With so much traffic, truck accidents are all but guaranteed. If you or a loved one was seriously injured by a negligent truck driver or due to the actions of a negligent trucking company, Accident Fighters, APC, is the firm to call.
Our attorneys have the experience, knowledge and skill to hold all at-fault parties accountable in personal injury litigation. And unlike other firms who prefer to settle cases even when terms are unfavorable, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial if the defendants aren’t willing to offer reasonable compensation.
Common Causes Of Truck Accidents
A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh 20 to 30 times more than a standard sedan and are obviously much larger. They are inherently dangerous, which is why commercial truck drivers are required to be specially trained and licensed. Unfortunately, truck accidents are often the result of negligence and poor decisions rather than just lack of experience or training.
Common causes of accidents include:
- Truck driver fatigue or inattention
- Unbalanced or improperly secured loads that make the vehicle more likely to tip over on sharp turns
- Inadequate vehicle maintenance (worn brakes, balding tires, etc.)
- Distraction caused by the communications equipment in the cab of the vehicle
- Speeding and aggressive driving
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Failure to monitor blind spots and to drive defensively
No matter what caused your accident, our firm will fully investigate and work to hold all at-fault parties accountable. In many cases, this could include the truck driver, trucking company and the company’s commercial insurer.
