Los Angeles Truck Accident Lawyers

If a Big Rig Ruined Your Life, We’re Here to Help

Everyone knows Los Angeles has a traffic problem. For the average driver, that mostly entails long waits during the commute. But anyone who has been injured or had a family member killed in a car crash, especially one involving a semi-truck, knows there are worse fates than to be stuck in congested traffic.

When a tractor-trailer collides with a car, the results can be catastrophic for the car. Unfortunately, because big rigs are commercial vehicles, navigating the insurance process and litigating liability can be much more difficult. Trucking companies have powerful lawyers and insurance companies that really don’t want to pay out on those multi-million dollar policies. That’s why victims of truck accidents need to hire a qualified personal injury attorney in Los Angeles as soon as possible.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a Los Angeles truck crash, please call Novik & Stanley, A Professional Law Corporation, today. The number is (818) 305-6041, and your consultation is free.

Truck Crashes – A Big Problem in LA

According to statistics from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, large truck and bus fatalities have increased annually nationwide. Compared to the national numbers, Los Angeles County is one of the worst regions in terms of accidents and fatalities, and by far the worst in the state of California.

Los Angeles, with its massive sprawl and densely populated urban areas, is crisscrossed by several major interstates, including the 5, the 10, and the 15. Our freeways see more commercial vehicles than most other parts of the country. In addition to the standard semis, there are construction vehicles, flatbed trucks, fuel tankers, delivery trucks, U-Hauls, and more.

Who Can Be Held Responsible for a Truck Accident?

Truck accidents are a problem with no easy solution. Truck drivers cover long distances every day while hauling massive loads. Because the trucker sits so high up in the vehicle’s cab and because the trailers can obscure views, the smallest human error can end in a collision.

When multiple parties are involved in a truck accident, assigning blame can be complicated. In many cases, negligence can be divided. Drivers who disobey traffic laws, drive recklessly, or fail to follow company protocols can be at fault. Intoxicated driving or driving while distracted are problems afflicting commercial truck drivers at a high rate. Companies with commercial trucking fleets may have failed to maintain their vehicles, or improperly supervised their drivers. A faulty or defective product from a manufacturer could have contributed to the accident (this is especially true with blown tires, a leading cause of truck crashes).

The responsible parties may include the driver, the trucking company, the company in charge of maintaining or repairing the vehicle, the company that designed a faulty product, or even a government agency that failed to properly maintain safe roads or highways.

If you've been injured in a collision with a truck, get legal help as soon as possible. Proving fault in an accident involving a commercial vehicle is much more difficult than proving fault in a regular motor vehicle crash. There may be multiple insurance companies or unions that have a vested interest in the outcome, and they’ll fight to protect those interests.
