Truck accidents

Understanding the facts

Being involved in a car accident is difficult enough, but being involved in a collision with a truck or a semi-truck can make things that much more detrimental. It’s important to note that semi-trucks and trucks generally are two separate types of vehicles with separate kinds of accidents. Although one is clearly more dangerous than the other, they both can cause unspeakable harm.

According to the National Safety Council, “in 2021, 5,700 large trucks were involved in a fatal crash, an increase from 2020 and a 49% increase in the last 10 years.” With trucking accidents on the rise, it’s important to be equipped with the best trucking lawyers in California.

I’ve been involved in a truck accident. Now what?

If you have been a victim of a truck accident and have incurred serious injury or property damage, the first step is to prioritize gathering as much information as possible. Whether it’s photos, witness statements, or other driver information. The next step is to seek the proper representation. You will want attorneys on your behalf with experience who are willing to listen and speak up for your concerns.

Who’s at fault?

This is a tricky question because there are different types of trucking operators. There are truck drivers who own their own trucks and lease them to different trucking companies or work as independent contractors. Then there are those who are just employees of a trucking company. Then finally, there are truck drivers who use their own trucks to carry their own product. With this in mind, the answer to the question of liability can be found in contracts between operators and owners of trucks. At times, accidents are caused by poor trucking maintenance or trucking malfunction. In addition, but not limited to inappropriate cargo weight.
