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.

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.
