Victims of a Santa Monica truck accident injury can be left with both physical and emotional injuries. Truck drivers, especially of big rigs or 18 wheelers must be trained appropriately to lower the chances of truck collisions once the drivers enter the road. The truck drivers must also do inspections on their trucks before every trip they make to ensure safety for other drivers and themselves. Common factors that contribute to truck accidents and truck collisions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Abandoning vehicle (leaving it in a traffic lane when disabled or not taking it to side of road if possible)

Client Reviews
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.
