Experienced Southern California Truck Accident Lawyers
Weighing as much as 80,000 pounds, trucks become extremely dangerous when they are driven in anything but the safest possible manner. Their sheer size makes them hard to stop quickly, and it also means they deliver a severe blow to any other vehicle that happens to be in the way. The drivers of those other vehicles are often left with life-altering injuries, and a significant number die as a result of truck collisions.
Based in Southern California, the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C. represents clients who suffered injuries in truck wrecks and families of those who died in such collisions. With decades of trial experience, our attorneys stand up for injured people against big trucking companies and their insurers to obtain full and fair compensation. If you would like to discuss your accident with one of our lawyers, simply contact us at your convenience.
Handling Injury Claims Involving All Kinds of Commercial Trucks
Our skilled attorneys represent clients who have been injured by many different kinds of large trucks, including:
- Delivery trucks (UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc.)
- Box trucks
- Dump trucks
- Garbage trucks
- Tanker trucks
- Concrete trucks/cement mixers
Truck Accident Claims Are More Complex Than Other Auto Accident Cases
The typical car accident claim usually involves the two drivers and their insurance companies. In a truck accident, however, things can quickly become more complicated. There are often multiple people and multiple entities involved, even if the accident only involved one truck.
Your lawyer will need to be able to sort through complex facts and identify all parties who may bear some responsibility for paying compensation after the crash. These parties may include:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The trucking company’s insurer
- The manufacturer of truck parts
- Third-party repair shops that performed poor maintenance on the truck
- The company that insures the cargo being hauled in the truck
- The person/company who loaded the cargo onto truck
Investigating the Cause of Your Truck Accident
It is easy for evidence to get lost in the chaotic aftermath of a truck accident. That is why we as personal injury lawyers work closely with experienced accident investigators and reconstructionists to piece together the timeline of events and tell the jury the story of the accident, the most important piece of which is the cause of the crash.
Over the years our team has handled commercial vehicle accidents caused by:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Logbook/hours-driven violations
- Defective truck parts such as brakes, steering systems, tires, lights and more
- Driving while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol
- Overloaded trucks
- Improperly loaded trucks
- Negligent hiring and/or inadequate driver training
