Canyon Country Truck Accident Attorney- Andrew L. Ellis Andy Ellis is one of the most successful truck accident lawyers in Los Angeles California. Meet Mr. Ellis and find out how he helps his clients who are injured in truck accidents.

Canyon County has been named one of the 100 safest places in America. While we are blessed with some of the greatest law enforcement in the nation, our brave men and women in blue can’t protect us from every hazard on the road – especially when a truck driver falls asleep at the wheel or plows through a red light at a high speed. When a sudden, catastrophic truck accident turns your world upside-down, the Los Angeles personal injury lawyers at Ellis Injury Law are here to guide you through the civil recovery process.  

A track record you can trust

  • $3 million for a fatality, after the driver of an 18-wheeler fell asleep at the wheel, killing the driver of a flower delivery truck who had his two daughters with him in the rollover crash. 
  • $1.4 million for neck and back injuries requiring surgery, after a big rig pushed another car into our client’s car, which was stopped at a red light. 
  • $750,000 for spinal cord injury requiring surgery, when a company truck plowed into our client who was stopped in a construction zone. 
  • $350,000 for neck and back issues, after a city garbage truck ran a red light, hit an elderly man’s vehicle, and tried to deny liability and blame our client’s issues on “the effects of aging.” 

You’ve only got one chance to get your claim right. Ellis Injury Law is a name you can trust, recognized by Best Lawyers®, Super Lawyers®, US News & World Report, the American Board of Trial Advocates, the Multi-Million-Dollar Advocates Forum, and ranked among the top 100 trial lawyers in America.  

Establishing fault 

Investigation is at the heart of our practice, particularly when it comes to truck accidents.  

  • Logbooks must be examined, preserved, and vetted for evidence of fraud.  
  • Driver activities must be compared to federal regulations overseeing commercial driving operations. 
  • GPS, Blackbox data, traffic cams, and surveillance footage must be assessed for evidence. 
  • A thorough site inspection and the help of accident reconstruction experts add more credibility. 
  • Identifying and interviewing eyewitnesses aids in establishing fault and liability. 
  • A medical expert can corroborate the extent of your injuries and rule out preexisting conditions. 

Sometimes more than the truck driver is at fault. It could be a boss forcing the driver into mandatory over-time, against federal law. It could be a mechanical failure of the truck traced back to the vehicle manufacturer. Air brakes are a common product liability claim in commercial trucks, for instance. It could be the company responsible for loading and securing loose cargo in the truck who is ultimately to blame. In any of these situations, you can expect to be faced with tough insurance companies on the other side, seeking to defer, deny, and defend. You need a Los Angeles truck accident lawyer who won’t back down under pressure. You need Ellis Injury Law. 

Contact a truck accident attorney for a free consultation 

California generally allows a two-year statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit. This means you have up to two years from the date of the truck accident to file your paperwork and initiate a claim for compensation. However, there are exceptions when physical or emotional pain from the accident is latent, or when you discover the identity of a hit-and-run driver after the fact. In some cases, you may be granted up to “three years of the discovery of harm.” Contact a Los Angeles personal injury attorney at Ellis Injury Law for a free consultation and representation with zero upfront expense.  A personal injury lawyer is waiting to speak with you and assess how they can help you pick up the pieces of your life.
