Truck Accident Lawyer

Sacramento truck accidents are not unusual, given that there are 67 state highways running through District 3, a large area that spreads between Sacramento and Nevada, including the cities of Roseville and Folsom.

If you’ve been involved in a truck accident that wasn’t your fault, please do not try to handle it on your own; contact a truck accident lawyer who can walk you through the process. There are far too many complexities in truck accident claims than compared to car accident cases, and it’s really easy to get discouraged when your expectation doesn’t get the outcome it deserves. The trucking company or insurance company may attempt to steer you away from legal counsel because they know that if you have a truck accident lawyer on your side, you are likely to receive a larger settlement.

Commercial Truck Accidents

From semi-trucks and flatbeds to 18 wheelers and tractor-trailers, establishing liability in a commercial truck accident case can be tricky. The accident may have been caused by the driver, the trucking company, the crew who loaded the freight, the mechanics who inspected the equipment, or the company that manufactured the truck and its defective parts. And the majority of these commercial trucking companies cross state borders, so it’s important to have a California truck accident lawyer in your corner who knows the ins and outs of not just federal trucking law, but state law as well.

Delivery Truck Accidents

Unlike other types of auto accidents, delivery truck accidents often involve multiple parties and take some time to reach a resolution. If the delivery company employs its own drivers, like FedEx, then they can be held liable for negligence. However, if companies like Amazon contract various third party delivery services, then more than one party could be held liable. And a truck accident lawyer should know the questions to ask to get to the bottom of your individual case.

Emergency Vehicle Accidents

Ambulances, fire trucks and police cars are often traveling at very high speeds, which highly increased the likelihood of injury or damage upon impact. Though they may be speeding for a good reason, the relatively recent addition of new technology has been proven to cause distracted driving accidents. And a distracted driver, regardless of vehicle type, can be held negligent and found guilty for a breach of duty. That’s why it’s vital to speak to an accident injury lawyer as soon as possible so the investigation can be performed promptly and thoroughly. Read more about emergency vehicle accidents.

Road Construction Accidents

Road construction zones can be a hazard to both the workers on-site and the drivers passing through. Roadways exposed to heavy commercial truck traffic need to be repaired often, so Sacramento and Roseville commuters are frequently exposed to construction areas. Not everyone navigates them as carefully as they should. Read more about road construction accidents and if you’ve suffered personal injury from one, get a car accident attorney or truck injury lawyer to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Bus Accidents

Large buses can be a threat to pedestrians, bicyclists and other drivers. Passengers on the bus can also be injured, since most buses don’t come equipped with seat belts. People often stand in the aisles, where they can easily be jolted. Bus drivers have a responsibility to drive safely, and bus companies (or local governments, in the case of public transit) have a responsibility to make sure the vehicles are properly maintained, and to employ only careful drivers.
