Semi Truck Accidents

Count on our attorneys in a crisis

Semi trucks (which include tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers) are some of the largest commercial trucks on the road in California. These trucks often tow one or two trailers. They also haul other large items, including car transport trailers, dump trailers and even other semi trucks.

Given the large size of such vehicles, accidents involving semi trucks often end up being very serious. That's why it's critical that you have an experienced California truck accident attorney on your side, standing up for your rights.

Why semi truck accidents happen

There are many reasons why accidents involving semi trucks occur. Common causes include:

  • Distracted driving, including:
    • Talking on a cellphone while driving
    • Texting while driving (even though it's against the law nationwide for truckers)
    • Operating a GPS
    • Changing a radio station while driving
    • Eating while driving
  • Speeding (especially on highways)
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Poor truck maintenance (brakes fail, a tire blows out, etc.)

Whatever the cause of your crash, our attorneys can aggressively investigate the accident and fight for the money you rightfully deserve.

How we can help you

Semi truck accidents can be complicated for many different reasons. The driver who caused your crash will often deny doing anything wrong. Or you could face fierce resistance from the truck driver's trucking company or insurance company.

Investigating trucking companies can be complicated. The combination of insurance companies and truck accidents can also be a volatile mix. That's because the stakes are so high. Often, the financial impact of a semi truck accident can add up to hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars.

We know how to negotiate with insurance companies. And if they don't cooperate, we take them to court. It's that simple. Find out what we can do for you. Schedule your free case evaluation today.
