Our Simi Valley truck accident injury lawyers and law office offer vigorous and compassionate legal representation for the injured victims of truck accidents, including victims of crashes with 18 wheelers and big rigs, and for the families of the victims killed in fatal collisions or for wrongful death claims in Simi Valley, a city located in Ventura County, California. Simi Valley has a population of 124,237 and is adjacent to Thousand Oaks to the west, Moorpark to the south and Chatsworth to the east. Simi Valley contains the famous Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, where Ronald Reagan was buried and where his Air Force One remains permanently displayed.

Simi Valley truck collision injury victims can have serious injuries, sometimes resulting in wrongful death claims. Precautionary steps must be taken to avert truck accidents, such as ensuring the truck drivers are well trained and that the trucks are carefully inspected before going on the road. However, it is not enough for truck drivers to just know about their trucks and check for problems before a trip. Truck drivers must also be prepared to handle any situation during their time on the road. Trucking companies should have the inexperienced drivers to practice taking the trucks on shorter routes under less severe weather conditions, while letting the more experienced truck drivers take on the trips that last one or several days. Common factors that contribute to truck accidents include the following:

  • Issues with the truck's mechanics
  • Speeding (by truck driver or other drivers on the road)
  • Imbalance of cargo weight within truck
Ways to Avoid Getting Into an Accident: Tip #1-Judge Other Vehicles by Their Appearance

Simi ValleyWhen on the road, it helps to be aware of the various types of vehicles that are driving next to you as well as having an idea of the vehicles' height and width, because that information can be extremely useful when a certain condition arises that forces you, as the driver, to determine whether a sharp brake will not cause an accident or if a quick lane change would not indirectly force another vehicle to lead to an accident. For example, a lane change or a sudden step on the brakes might not cause a Ferrari to slam into the back of your car, but if a heavy truck is driving at 65mph at just a few seconds behind you, then it is almost certain that the truck cannot avoid making contact with you, even if the driver of that vehicle reacts as fast as possible. Therefore, it can always be helpful to be aware of the different sizes and shapes of vehicles driving on the road with you.

Truck Accident Injury Information for Simi Valley

Victims of truck collisions go through various types of injuries, from minor to life threatening. One type of painful injury is an elbow fracture injury or Olecranon Fracture injury. An elbow fracture can be caused by falling or having a motor vehicle accident. The damage can go from being a less severe non-displaced fracture to a displaced instable fracture. If the fracture is displaced then surgery is required, but if not displaced, the elbow could heal by being immobilized between four to six weeks. Please contact us now, including for referrals to doctors who may provide treatment without a request for payment until the claim is resolved, if you or a loved one sustained a elbow fracture injury from any truck collision or other personal injury accident in Simi Valley, Los Angeles or anywhere in California.

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.
