Highway Truck Accidents

Our attorneys pursue justice for you

Tractor-trailer trucks and other large commercial trucks frequently travel on highways throughout California's East Bay - from I-680 in Walnut Creek to I-580 and I-80 in Oakland and Orinda.

Unfortunately, truck accidents also often occur on highways throughout Northern California. And when they do, the injuries are often serious. That's because trucks often travel at high speeds on California's highways, especially semi trucks.

Knowing what to do after a serious highway truck accident in California can be confusing. Fortunately, you don't have to deal with your accident on your own. Our experienced Walnut Creek truck accident attorneys at Clancy & Diaz, LLP can help you every step of the way.

Types of highway truck accidents

There are many different kinds of highway truck accidents. Some of the most common - and most serious - include:

  • Jackknife truck accidents - The trailer part of a tractor-trailer folds in on itself.
  • Rollover truck accidents - A truck rolls over and causes a serious highway accident.
  • Underride truck accidents - A car crashes into the rear end of a tractor trailer and becomes trapped underneath the trailer.
  • Speeding truck accidents - A speeding truck crashes into other vehicles.
  • Distracted driving truck accidents - A truck driver fails to pay attention and causes a serious accident.
  • Rear-end truck accident - A truck following too closely crashes into the vehicle in front.

Whatever type of highway truck accident you're dealing with, we can help you hold the truck driver and trucking company accountable for their actions.

We put your best interests first

You might think you don't need a lawyer if a truck driver clearly caused your highway accident. All you need to do is contact the police after your accident and the insurance company for the truck driver who caused your crash will take care of everything.

Don't be so sure about that. Most insurance companies only care about one thing - paying injury victims as little as possible. That's why it's critical that you talk to an attorney at our law firm as soon as possible about your accident. We can explain all your available legal options and advise you on which approach makes the most sense for you.

As your attorney, we can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf for a fair settlement offer. And if they refuse to cooperate with us, we're prepared to take them to court and file a lawsuit against them on your behalf. Find out how we can help.
