What will an attorney do to help?

Accidents involving large commercial trucks can become incredibly complicated because they often involve multiple parties who could be liable for damages. In these cases, trucking companies will usually have aggressive insurance carriers and legal teams on their side to limit how much money they pay out in a claim. A skilled Los Angeles truck accident attorney will have the resources to obtain all evidence related to the crash, including video and photo surveillance, any accident reports, eyewitness statements, and more.

Using this information, an attorney will work with trusted medical and economic professionals to calculate a victim’s total losses and negotiate with all parties involved to obtain a fair settlement.

Semi-truck crashes can be devastating

According to data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), we know that a fully loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. Due to the size and weight of these trucks, any crash with a traditional passenger vehicle has the potential to cause devastating injuries. At Rise Law Firm, it is not uncommon for our attorneys to help clients who have sustained the following injuries:

  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Crush injuries or amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding

Unfortunately, accidents involving large commercial trucks are more likely to result in death than accidents involving only passenger vehicles.

All too often, semi-truck crashes are caused by the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company. It is vital that truck drivers follow all rules of the roadway, not operate while distracted, and never drive while impaired by alcohol or drugs. Drivers must also follow all FMCSA hours of service requirements so that they do not operate while fatigued.

All trucking companies must ensure that vehicles are inspected and maintained on a regular basis, per FMCSA requirements. Truck owners and operators must ensure that all drivers are trained before allowing them behind the wheel.

What kind of compensation is available for a truck accident?

If you or somebody you care about has been injured in a crash that was caused by the careless or negligent actions of a truck driver or trucking company, you may be entitled to various types of compensation. At Rise Law Firm, we will investigate every aspect of your claim in order to secure any compensation you are entitled to, including:

  • All medical expenses related to the truck crash
  • Any income and benefits you lost if you could not work
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of personal enjoyment damages
  • Possible punitive damages in cases of gross negligence on the part of the truck driver or trucking company
