Rosemead Truck Accident Lawyers
Whether you work at Southern California Edison, Panda, Walmart, Garvey or Rosemead School Districts, or any other local employer, we all know how frustrating it can be to get stuck in Southern California traffic after a long day at work. Large trucks are seemingly everywhere, and their drivers often drive 10-plus hours per day. It’s not easy to remain fully focused and alert every second for over 10 hours, and when these drivers make mistakes, the destruction is magnified due to their larger size and weight.
Your life can change forever in the blink of an eye due to someone else’s negligence, and if this happens, you need someone on your side that you can trust. For over two decades, the personal injury lawyers at Ellis Injury Law have been helping Southern Californians bounce back from some of the toughest periods of their lives.
Possible causes of truck accidents and who may be liable
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. However, with truck accidents, factors such as failure to perform routine vehicle maintenance, overweight trucks, and cargo that is improperly secured often come into play as well.
Similarly, there are often a greater number of potentially liable parties in truck accidents than in accidents involving regular passenger vehicles. The driver, the trucking company that employs the driver, the maintenance company that services the truck, the truck manufacturer and even the shipper of the goods being transported are some of the parties that may be held liable.
You need a Rosemead truck accident attorney you can count on
There’s no shortage of lawyers that handle regular passenger vehicle accidents, but many of them don’t have nearly as much experience working with truck accident claims as our Rosemead truck accident lawyers do. If you hire an attorney that doesn’t fully understand where to look, who to talk to, and which questions to ask in order to get to the bottom of a complicated truck accident claim to find what caused the accident and who might be liable, you could easily cost you and your family millions of dollars. Hiring one of these inexperienced attorneys or – even worse – settling your claim before consulting with a truck accident lawyer– is music to the insurance company’s ears, as you just let them off the hook of having to pay what they truly owe you. Do not make either one of those mistakes – your family is counting on you.
