San Diego Trucking Accident Lawyers

Fighting For Those Who Have Been Injured in Trucking Accidents in California

Accidents involving semi-tractor trailers, dump trucks, and large trucks all too often can result in catastrophic injuries or death. Unfortunately, we often find that these truck accidents easily could have been avoided if the trucking company had not chosen to put profits ahead of safety in its list of priorities. It is this type of negligence that drives us to represent victims of trucking accidents. We help accident victims hold truckers and trucking companies accountable for their actions in causing injuries and even death to others.

When a traffic accident involves an 18-wheeler, a delivery truck, or another commercial vehicle, outcomes are often devastating. Victims and their families may have their lives changed forever by a fatality, brain or spinal injury, or other tragic consequences.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can be very devastating, leading to severe injuries and substantial damages. Identifying the root causes of these accidents is paramount for establishing liability and pursuing successful legal claims. Some common causes of truck accidents may include:

  • Driver Fatigue: A primary contributor to truck accidents is driver fatigue. Long hours on the road, stringent deadlines, and inadequate rest can impair a truck driver's ability to react swiftly and make sound decisions.
  • Distracted Driving: Distractions like texting, phone conversations, or in-cab device use can divert a truck driver's attention from the road.
  • Improper Maintenance: Inadequately maintained trucks pose a significant risk on the road. Brake failures, tire blowouts, and other mechanical problems can lead to catastrophic accidents.
  • Overloaded or Improperly Loaded Trucks: Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks can compromise stability and maneuverability, increasing the risk of accidents.
  • Reckless Driving: Aggressive driving behaviors, including speeding, tailgating, and abrupt lane changes, contribute to many truck accidents.

Common Injuries in Truck Accidents

Truck accidents often lead to severe injuries because of the sheer weight and size of the vehicles. Victims may face long-term physical, emotional, and financial consequences. Common injuries may include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): The force of a truck collision can result in traumatic brain injuries, impacting cognitive functions and quality of life.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Truck accidents can cause severe spinal cord injuries, resulting in paralysis or long-term disability.
  • Fractures and Orthopedic Injuries: The impact of a truck collision can cause fractures and orthopedic injuries, necessitating extensive medical treatment.
  • Internal Injuries: Internal injuries, like organ damage and internal bleeding, cannot be instantly noticeable but can have severe consequences.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in a Truck Accident Claim?

When pursuing a truck accident claim, victims could be entitled to multiple types of damages to compensate for their losses. Potential damages that could be recovered may include:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Property Damage
  • Wrongful Death
