Truck Accident

Los Angeles Truck Accident Lawyer Personal Injury Attorneys Representing Victims of Accidents Involving Large Trucks & 18-Wheelers in Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties in California

Large trucks such as 18-wheelers and tractor-trailer rigs can leave accident victims with serious or even fatal injuries. Regular sized vehicles are no match for these massive trucks, which often weigh 80,000 lbs. when loaded. At The Justice Firm, our Los Angeles truck accident attorneys are 100% dedicated to protecting victims' legal rights and securing justice. We hold negligent drivers and/or the companies they work for accountable, working to obtain the full damages victims deserve for costs related to their injuries.

Accidents involving large commercial trucks can be very complex, and often involve multiple parties. When an accident occurs involving one of these large trucks and one or more vehicles, the trucking firm often sends their investigators to the scene of the accident immediately, in order to mitigate their liability. It is critical that victims contact a skilled and aggressive Los Angeles personal injury lawyer right away. It is vital that as a victim, you do not give information, answer questions, or say anything that could in anyway indicate partial blame on your behalf.

Common Injuries Associated with Truck Accidents in Orange County and Throughout California

Injuries sustained in truck accidents are often far more serious or life-threatening than those sustained in an accident involving smaller vehicles. Victims may become disabled for the short-term, or permanently. Truck drivers are often operating on little sleep; in many cases, driver fatigue or speeding in order to make a pick-up or delivery appointment are to blame. Some of the most common injuries suffered in accident involving 18-wheelers or other large trucks include:

  • Amputation injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord and neck injuries
  • Traumatic head or brain injuries
  • Abrasions, lacerations, and contusions
  • Bone dislocation
  • Cosmetic disfigurement
  • Death

When a loved one dies in an accident involving a large truck, surviving family members may be eligible for wrongful death compensation. Truck accidents in LA often occur as a result of improper maintenance of trucks, defective tires or engine parts, improper distribution of weight on the trailer, overloading, and lack of sleep or tiredness of the driver, who may have been driving more than the allowed number of hours and falsifying logs. Drivers may also be responsible for an accident when they take drugs to stay awake, drive while under the influence of alcohol, or simply speed or otherwise operate a tractor-trailer rig in an unsafe manner.

Truck accidents can leave families facing substantial financial loss, not only due to medical costs that insurance companies don't cover, but lost wages, pain and suffering, psychological/emotional distress, even future medical costs or income if the victim requires therapy, surgery, or rehabilitation due to his or her injuries. The costs can be overwhelming, and even lead to financial ruin. We urge you to contact the Los Angeles truck accident lawyers at The Justice Firm today.

Client Reviews
I moved to another state and missed court. They issued a warrant. I called the Justice Firm and spoke to Joe Virgilio and he was very helpful. The they were able to get the warrant removed and fixed it so I got probation and could go back to work. Neal R.
My mom called the Justice Firm. I had a public defender who was pushing me to take a bad deal. My new attorney Mr Browning was able to get my case dismissed. They also gave me a number for a bondsman who gave a great price so I could get out and get back to work. Carlos G.
My son had the lawyers at the Justice Firm represent him. They were really good. Mr. Hunt always calls me back to answer my questions and let me know what is going on. We have referred several people to them over he last few years and they all thank me for it. They work with the district attorneys to get good results. Rick Q.
