Truck Accidents

Orange County Personal Injury Lawyers

Getting in an accident with a truck can be devastating, as the sheer size of a large truck will often cause great damage to motorists in smaller vehicles. The average 18-wheeler weighs 80,000 lbs. (40 tons), while the average automobile weighs about 5,000 lbs.

It was reported that from 2011-2015, truck accidents in California resulted in an average of 300 deaths per year. 97% of those deaths account for passengers of regular automobiles, and not the truck driver. Additionally, California is listed among five other states as having the most truck accidents per year.

If you or a loved one have suffered injury from an accident with a truck, and believe that the accident occurred due to a third-party’s negligence, our experienced personal injury attorneys at Legacy Shield Law Firm are here to help.

Contact our firm today to discuss your claim in a free consultation. We are committed to your well-being and will strive for the best possible outcome in your case.

We handle claims against drivers of any of the following types of trucks, among others:

  • 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, flatbeds
  • Tractor trailer
  • Construction Trucks
  • Dump/Garbage Truck
  • Buses

Unfortunately, many truck drivers are either overworked or irresponsible about their resting habits. This can lead to fatigue at the wheel, which is a common cause of roadway accidents. Some truck driver employers fail to abide by federal regulations in order to meet higher delivery quotas. If it can be shown that the truck driver with whom you had an accident was exhausted at the wheel due to unlawful pressure from his or her employer, we may be able to hold that trucking company responsible for your injuries.

In addition to exhaustion, other common causes of truck driver negligence include:

  • Distracted Truck Driver
  • Reckless Driving (e.g. speeding
  • Driving Under the Influence of Drugs or Alcohol

With help from our experienced legal professionals, you can pursue compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages. Furthermore, if you lost a loved one in a truck accident, we can help you file a wrongful death claim. We understand that monetary compensation will not always truly make up for the loss you’ve experienced. However, receiving this money will ensure that your needs are met and can help you move forward.
