We take our cases on a contingency fee basis, so you will not see any legal fees until we secure the compensation you need.
How Will an Attorney Benefit Your Case?
Truck accidents are serious events and usually involve more parties than traditional car accidents. This can include multiple insurance carriers as well as legal teams for the trucking company. Your truck accident attorney will be the one to level the playing field and ensure you are treated fairly.
Your attorney will gather all of the evidence necessary to prove the truck driver or company’s negligence. This includes:
Photo and video surveillance
Truck company and driver safety records
Your medical records
Proof of loss of income
Using this information, your lawyer will negotiate with all parties to reach a settlement that will cover all of your expenses. Moreover, we will not let insurance companies take advantage of you. Even when it seems like the other side is entirely at-fault, their insurance company will try to offer you the lowest settlement amount possible. Our Ontario truck accident attorneys have years of experience dealing with insurance companies and we fight to make sure our clients get maximum compensation for their pain and suffering.
Common Truck Accident Injuries
Accidents involving big rigs tend to be much more devastating than regular passenger vehicle accidents. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) says that a fully loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. That is why it is not uncommon for our truck accident lawyers to see the following after a crash:
The FMCSA says that there were approximately 148,000 people injured and 4,761 people killed due to large trucking accidents during the latest reporting year in the US. California has a large economy and plenty of large trucks on the roadways.
