Trucking Accidents

Los Angeles, California

Truck accidents are much more likely to result in catastrophic injuries such as those to the brain or spinal cord. Tragically, a large number of truck accidents also result in death to drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles.

Because so many of Southern California’s interstates and roadways are truck routes, thousands of people in and around Los Angeles are at an increased risk for these types of auto accidents every day. When you are involved in a truck accident, you need an aggressive personal injury lawyer on your side as soon as possible to ensure you are treated fairly and provided swift compensation.

Los Angeles truck accident attorney Mickey Fine and his experienced legal team are prepared to fight for your rights. Please call (310) 546-8146 today to schedule a free truck accident consultation at our Manhattan Beach office.

Truck Accident Liability

Establishing liability in a truck accident requires first understanding its cause. Some of the leading causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver distraction or fatigue
  • Speeding or aggressive driving
  • Improperly loaded trailers
  • Drug and/or alcohol use
  • Vehicle failures

Some of these factors may seem to point directly to the driver, but in many truck accident cases multiple parties will share liability. For example, a driver who is speeding or forgoing sleep may be trying to meet an unrealistic schedule. This places liability on both the driver and the company he works for and, in some circumstances, may even include the company being delivered to and government entities. Even seemingly simple truck accidents can prove to be incredibly complex. Only a truck accident lawyer can investigate your accident, identify all liable parties, and fight to get you every penny you are due.

Do Not Accept an Insurance Settlement

Following a truck accident it is common to be contacted by a number of insurance companies. Bear in mind that agreeing to a settlement waives your right to seek true compensation. Before you accept a settlement offer from a trucking or insurance company, discuss your case with our truck accident lawyer. Mr. Fine can assess your case and help you understand all that you may truly be entitled to.
