Because of their size, truck collisions, including accidents involving very large big rig trucks, referred to as 18 wheelers, often result in very serious injuries and damages to the occupants of smaller vehicles or pedestrians. If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident in Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley or elsewhere in California, it is important for you to know that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Why Truck Accidents Occur Truck Accident

With California truck accident cases, many different issues may arise so prompt investigation is advised. Truck accidents can occur for a variety of reasons such as:

  • Tired Drivers: The route a truck driver was follows, how much time the driver is given to complete the route, and how many rest stops are allotted and for how long, all contribute to why a driver may be tired. Many truck collisions occur due to drowsy truck drivers who, due to incentives or other reasons, attempt to cover too much ground in a day. This can result in drivers falling asleep on the road and losing control of the truck.

  • Size of the Truck: Other times, truck accidents occur because, due to the size of the trucks, they cannot stop in time when there is a stopped car or other type of hazard ahead. Truck drivers need proper training, including to maintain an extra space cushion when driving, because of the weight of their vehicle and potential for serious injuries that their vehicles may inflict. When a truck driver does not use extra caution, especially in bad weather, a truck collision causing serious injuries may occur.

  • Poor Visibility: Many truck accidents are also caused due to the low visibility and large blind spots that most big rig trucks have. For this reason, it is always advised to keep a safe distance from trucks, especially on the freeway.

Obtaining Compensation for Your Truck Accident

Because big rig trucks and other types of commercial trucks are usually covered by commercial insurance policies, the insurance coverage for the drivers of these vehicles is much larger than those for individual automobile drivers. These larger policies are often necessary due to the serious injuries and deaths that their vehicles can cause to the occupants of much smaller cars, motorcycles, and pedestrians.

An experienced Los Angeles truck accident lawyer who understands commercial insurance policies can help you get maximum recovery. Our firm strives to recover the full compensation our clients deserve for their serious injuries resulting from truck collisions. Possible damages allowed under California law include financial compensation for:

  • Medical Bills—hospital, ambulance, surgery charges
  • Recovery Costs—physical therapy, psychological and dental care
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and inconvenience
  • Damaged Property—cars, cell phones, etc.
  • Rental car costs
  • Diminished value to vehicle

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.
