Truck accident statistics
Since trucks are so large and have so much momentum, the accidents they are involved in are almost always catastrophic. Truck accidents cause very serious injuries. About 5,000 people in California are injured in truck accidents per year.
Truck accidents can also kill. Roughly 200 California residents, like those in North Hills, die every year in truck accidents.
If you or a loved one were involved in a crash, you need a North Hills truck accident lawyer who will treat you and your case as more than a statistic. Every case deserves personal attention and hard work, and the lawyers at Ellis Injury Law are committed to doing that for you.
Serious accidents need lawyers with serious experience
You need a truck accident lawyer with the experience and tenacity necessary to handle your case with care and drive. Our lawyers are standing by to work hard on your case. We never settle for a low amount just to keep up our percentages of “wins.” Instead, we will fight tooth and nail to get you the maximum compensation possible for you and your injuries, loses, pain and suffering.
Even if the truck accident you were in was partially your fault, we can still take on your case. California law allows victims to sue for partial damages in cases of partial liability. For instance, if the accident was 30% your fault, you can still seek 70% of the total compensation to help cover your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and general pain and suffering.
How will a lawyer prove your claim?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA), has a series of laws and regulations in place to help regulate truck and commercial vehicle drivers to keep them and other motorists safe. These laws include:
- Maximum drive and on-duty hours
- Inspection and maintenance requirements
- Loading and unloading requirements
- Weight allocation regulations
The truck driver (or trucking company) can be presumed negligent if these or any similar FMSCA laws are broken before or during a truck accident. These cases can be easier to prove and negotiate, as the clear breaking of the law indicates liability. However, even if your case doesn’t have a clear violation of FMSCA laws, an Ellis Law Corporation North Hills truck accident attorney can still review your case to see if it’s viable.
If we decide to take your case and you decide to partner with us, we work on a contingency basis. This means that you pay no fees out of pocket. We collect payment once you receive compensation. Contact an Ellis personal injury attorney today for a free consultation. Let us review your case.
