Truck Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles and Orange County

Statistics from the Department of Transportation show that truck accidents are a major problem across the United States. As the country’s most populous state, California has by far the highest number of truck accidents recorded every year.

Truck accidents can affect both other motorists and pedestrians. Because of the speeds that are often involved and the immense weight of most trucks, injuries from truck accidents can be very serious and often require extensive short and long-term medical care.

If you’ve been injured in a semi, tractor trailer or 10-wheeler truck accident, an experienced lawyer can ensure you receive a fair amount of compensation to help you manage medical expenses, the cost of replacing any items that were damaged in the collision and even lost income due to your injuries.

Seeking and collecting compensation can be extremely challenging, especially if you don’t have any legal experience of your own. Having an experienced attorney by your side makes this a far more manageable process and ensures you’ll receive reliable advice and real results.

As one of Southern California’s premier truck accident lawyers, Daniel Kim can provide the legal assistance you need to successfully pursue compensation after a truck accident.

The Severity of These Accidents

Truck accidents are both common and also extremely dangerous, both for the driver and those around them. Because of the massive dimensions of the vehicle, truck accidents often involve many people who happened to be near it when it lost control, or collided with another vehicle. When such circumstances occur, the number of affected people can be anything between a handful and a dozen; and each one of them will require legal representation and help in the form of compensation.

Additionally, and once again also because of the size of the vehicle, truck accidents tend to be followed by serious physical consequences, and are one of the mostly likely accidents to cause death, if not to the driver, then to those around him. When such a large machine begins to lose control on the road, there is very little that can be done to stop it from reaching an impact point. While some accidents can be the fault of the driver, others often have to do with faulty road surfaces, stray animals, as well as the negligence of others.

Are You Eligible to Receive a Settlement?

Every year, thousands of truck accidents occur in California. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include prescription drug use by truck drivers, excessive speeding, fatigue or general tiredness, and even alcohol consumption.

Injuries from truck accidents can often be severe. Because of the weight of trucks and the speed at which many commercial vehicles travel, it’s far from uncommon for deaths to occur as a result of a truck accident.

If you’ve been injured in a truck accident that wasn’t your fault, you can and should speak to an experienced truck accident attorney. If your accident was the result of a negligent or intoxicated motorist, you have a very good chance of successfully seeking financial compensation.

Settlements for truck accident victims are awarded to cover the cost of things such as health and medical care and psychological treatment. If your accident prevents you from returning to work, you may also be eligible to receive compensation for lost income.

Why Legal Support is Very Important with Truck Accidents

Although trucks can be the private vehicle of the truck driver, more often they are a rented vehicle from the firm that the driver is working for. This means that the procedure is even more complex, because the driver (provided that the accident was not their fault), must, in a sense, be defended from his employer as well. Truck accidents are often chaotic and involve more people than a single person can handle, which means more paperwork and even more organizational skills and experience.

For this reason, our experienced team of lawyers will guide you through the process with as little stress as possible on your part. We will organize all the paperwork, collect all the necessary evidence, research the best compensation and insurance option for you, and develop a plan to defend you in court, ensuring that you receive financial support for the emotional and physical stress that you have gone through because of the accident.

This is not something that victims are able to successfully accomplish on their own, specifically because of the detailed work that must be done. Without any previous legal experience, or knowledge of the laws that apply to the state where the accident occurred, compensation is almost impossible to receive. Allow us to help you go through this traumatic experience by being your partners and supporting you from the moment you give us a call, to the moment you are awarded financial support.

Why Should You Hire a Truck Accident Attorney?

Truck accidents can be traumatizing experiences. They can also result in serious injuries and — in some cases — death. It’s normal to feel confused or traumatized after a crash, even over the long term as you begin to recover physically.
