When an 18 wheeler or other large truck collides with a car, the result can be devastating. Semi tractor trailers and other large commercial vehicles account for more than 5,000 traffic fatalities on U.S. highways each year and that number is on the rise.
The trucking injury attorneys of Shernoff Bidart Echeverria LLP represent people who have sustained serious injuries in truck-related accidents as well as family members of those who have suffered a wrongful death in a truck crash.
Whether you were rear ended by a grocery truck or you crashed into a jackknifed semi on Cajon Pass, we can help you recover the financial compensation you need.
Truck accidents are complicated. Drivers and trucking companies must meet stringent safety regulations. Often separate insurance companies cover the tractor, trailer, driver and the load.
Truck accidents can be caused by driver fatigue, speeding, black ice, tire tread separation or an improperly maintained vehicle. A load shift can cause a rollover. Driver error and inattention can result in severe injuries.
In our free initial consultation, our personal injury lawyers will take the time to listen carefully to your concerns and answer any questions you may have about personal injury law and your specific case.
Next we will gather police reports, interview witnesses, document the scene of the crash, and preserve any evidence. We may hire an accident reconstruction expert to thoroughly examine the scene and any evidence.
Our lawyers will identify the responsible insurance companies and pursue a fair settlement on your behalf.
If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, we will take your case to court, where we have a long and successful track record of recovering monetary compensation for our clients.
