Long Beach Truck Accident Attorneys

Get the Legal Help You Need After a Long Beach Truck Accident

Truck accidents are worse than other types of motor vehicle crashes. When you consider that a commercial truck carrying a full load can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, and that passenger vehicles weigh about 3,000 pounds, it’s easy to see how catastrophic truck vs. car accidents can be. The sheer size of a truck can cause an immense amount of damage to other vehicles it collides with. Sadly, these accidents can cause severe injuries or be fatal for the drivers and passengers in the other car.

What Are Common Types of Tractor-Trailer Accidents?

Commercial trucks - also known as tractor-trailers, semi-trucks, 18-wheeleers, or big rigs - are not only dangerous because of their size and weight, but also because of their design. Let’s look at some traffic accidents that are unique to semis.

I've Been in a Collision with a Truck - What Steps Should I Take?

After a crash with severe damage to the passenger vehicle, it’s an incredibly stressful time. While victims often know that there’s a lot that needs to be done, they don’t know where to start. Or they’re simply too overcome with the emotional trauma of the situation to think about their next steps. The most important things to do after a truck wreck are to:

Assuming you have received the appropriate medical treatment, whether it was emergency care or a quick examination, Attorney Joseph H. Low IV highly recommends against speaking with anyone other than the police, health practitioners, and your family. Specifically, you and your family will want to avoid speaking with the negligent trucking company and the insurance adjustors assigned to the accident. It is imperative that you avoid these leeches for a number of reasons:

The Bottom Line - Trucking companies, quite literally, have a tremendous amount riding on their shipping performance. Even the smallest incident can result in economic complications for their shareholders. More importantly, the insurance agencies providing coverage for the fleet have a large investment to consider as well. When accidents occur, these agencies stand to lose a significant amount of money. The end result is increased premiums for the trucking company and an overall net loss for the insurance company that holds the policy. This is something that both parties will attempt to avoid in every way.

Your Recovery - Because both trucking companies and their insurers have a great deal of money on the line, they will do everything in their power to avoid serious losses after a crash. This means getting the people who were harmed to accept the lowest settlement amount possible. This can be accomplished in a number of underhanded ways, from bullying you into signing a one-sided deal or prying into every corner of your personal life to dig up potentially harmful information. In every case, they will attempt to manipulate, cajole, and harass victims in hopes of securing a low settlement deal.

Your Compensation - A qualified truck accident lawyer in Long Beach can help you get the compensation you deserve after a wreck. Compensation may be granted to cover medical expenses, lost income due to an inability to work, pain and suffering, future medical expenses and therapy, and any loss of future earnings. These expenses can quickly add up to tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s easy to see why the trucking and insurance companies don’t want to pay these claims, but we will fight to get you and your family everything you deserve.

Who Can Be Sued?

While it’s logical to assume that the truck driver was solely responsible for the accident, that’s not always the case. There are a number of people who could also be responsible, including:

There are many parties involved, and even the relationship between the truck driver and trucking company may play a part. For instance, if the truck driver was an employee of the trucking company, the company could be partially to blame. However, if the driver was an independent contractor, he could be wholly at fault. Determining who to hold liable for the accident can be complicated, and this is another way a qualified Long Beach truck accident attorney can help you.
