Representing Semi-Truck Accident Victims

A car-truck collision can happen in a split second, but can change lives forever. Truck accidents often result in catastrophic injuries to the driver and passengers of the smaller vehicle. If you have suffered a brain injury, back injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis or another serious injury – or if you have lost a loved one in a fatal semi accident – talk to a personal injury lawyer about your specific options.

I am Lakeport truck accident attorney J. David Markham. I represent clients in the Lake County and Mendocino County areas who have been injured in trucking accidents. If you or someone close to you has been injured in a truck accident, please contact my law office to schedule a free consultation.

Pursuing Compensation for California Truck Accident Victims

Determining the cause of a truck accident is the first step in pursuing compensation for accident victims. Often, truck accidents are caused by the negligence of a truck driver or of the trucking company:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Swerving into adjacent lanes
  • Improperly secured loads
  • Malfunctioning equipment

Once the cause of the truck accident is determined and liability is established, I will help you seek maximum compensation for all accident-related expenses. This may include compensation for medical and hospital bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related costs.
