Palmdale Truck Accident Lawyers
We all lead busy lives here in the “Aerospace Capital of the United States,” and because of that, we may not always have a clear mind with 100 percent focus on the road for every second while we drive. And most of us don’t spend more than an hour or two – at the most – behind the wheel every day. When you consider that truck drivers typically work 10-plus hour shifts and are also operating much larger and heavier vehicles than a regular passenger vehicle, it’s not hard to imagine how truck accidents can happen and how much destruction they can inflict.
We help you pick up the pieces if disaster strikes
Your life can change in the blink of an eye due to a truck accident, and if that happens, you need a Palmdale truck accident attorney that you can trust to help you pick up the pieces and maximize your compensation.

We know how to get results for truck accident victims
One client of ours suffered neck and lower back injuries in a Los Angeles trucking accident. Surgery was required, and the medical expenses totaled nearly $200,000. Ellis Injury Law recovered $1.4 Million for that client.
Another client of ours suffered spine injuries in a trucking accident in Los Angeles, requiring surgery, and racking up a medical bill of over $270,000. That client made the right choice by hiring a truck accident lawyer from Ellis Injury Law and ended up recovering $750,000.
Common causes of truck accidents
Some truck accidents are caused by factors similar to the causes of regular passenger vehicle accidents, such as driver fatigue, distracted driving, speeding too fast for the speed limit or road conditions, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driver inexperience or poor decision making. Truck accidents often bring other factors into play though, such as failure to perform routine vehicle maintenance, overweight trucks, and cargo that is improperly secured. Our experienced Palmdale truck accident lawyers understand these additional potential causes that are unique to truck accident cases, and therefore know where to look, who to speak with, and how to dig deep through complex facts in order to determine who caused your injustice.
Typical injuries caused by truck accidents
Some of the injuries that may result from these accidents include the following:
- Broken bones
