Our Canoga Park truck accident injury attorneys and law office provide compassionate and aggressive legal representation for the victims of truck accidents and their families, which can include truck accidents from light minivans to heavy ballast tractors, and offer support for wrongful death claims in the community of Canoga Park in the city of Los Angeles in Los Angeles County, California. Canoga Park is surrounded by West Hills to the west, Winnetka to the east, Woodland Hills to the south and Chatsworth to the north. The Canoga Park area was part of the Mission San Fernando that was owned by Spain from 1797 to 1846 and later became controlled by Mexico in the Mexican War of Independence. When Americans took control of Canoga Park, it became an area of wheat farms and today it has developed into a developed city with currently one of the largest shopping malls on the west coast, which is known as the Westfield Topanga Mall. Canoga Park has had a few stars that resided in the area such as Bryan Cranston, who starred in the show Breaking Bad, and Eugene Selznick.

Canoga Park's truck accident injury victims can suffer great emotional distress as well as physically injuries that can have a permanent negative effect on the quality of life for the victim, sometimes resulting in wrongful death claims. Truck drivers must take part in months of training and learn how to conduct careful inspections of their trucks as well as learn how to handle emergency situations caused by other drivers or the mechanical defects of their trucks. A few major reasons for truck collisions include:

Poor road conditions due to poor maintenance such as having potholes Truck or car having mechanical problem that causes driver to lose control Extreme fog to the point that a driver cannot see the lines for the lanes on the road

Evading an Accident: Tip #9-Drive Prudently Through Tunnels and Bridges

When coming up to a bridge or tunnel, it is important to use caution by reducing your speed and checking to see if other vehicles are driving carelessly, to avoid a dangerous accident. Some bridges do not have a center divider, making it more likely for a oncoming vehicle to accidentally enter your lane, which means that you must watch out for vehicles on both sides of the road. A collision on a bridge, especially with a semi-truck or big rig, can very likely force your vehicle onto the edge of the bridge and depending on the height of the bridge, create a situation where you can end up in a fatal crash. For example, a truck may collide with a smaller vehicle and the impact can force that vehicle over the side rail and have it drop from a high elevation onto the ground beneath. In addition, tunnels are dangerous by tending to have more narrow lanes and a crash in a tunnel can cause your vehicle to hit the side wall of the tunnel that can also lead to a severe injury. Larger trucks should be completely focused when going through a tunnel, because they might take up more than their own lane and if the road curves, then they need to anticipate the sharpness of the turn in the tunnel and adjust their speed accordingly. Taking these precautionary measures will ensure a safe passage through tunnels and bridges that can significantly reduce the amount of fatal truck and car crashes.

You guys did a great job in settling my case! Hope you all do well and prosper. Thank you for a job well done. Jackie C.
We had two prior attorneys who were unable to settle our car accident case. We then hired Gary and Robert Walch and they not only got us both great settlements, but personally spent time with us explaining everything clearly. We couldn't be happier. Thank you! A.M. and M.A.
Dear Gary, I just want to thank you for working so hard on my case! I know at times we were a bit difficult, but you did a great job. I thank you and your son for good results. I will pass your number on to any one that I run across who may need a PI attorney! I send you warm regards. Julie B.
Dear Gary, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your efforts on my behalf. The car accident was a very traumatizing experience for me. But knowing that I could trust you and your son, Robert, helped alleviate my fears and worries. Carmella C.
Thank you for all of your hard work and thank you for making it so easy over e-mail for me. I'm a busy working mom of an Autistic 5 year old son and you guys were great. I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Edna G.
