Calabasas Truck Accident Lawyer

Injured in a Semi-Truck or Big Rig Accident in Calabasas?

When semi-trucks are involved in accidents with other vehicles, the drivers and passengers in the standard size vehicles are at a significant disadvantage. When compared with the drivers of large tractor trailers and 18-wheelers, the drivers of standard vehicles faced severe injuries and had a greater threat of death than the drivers of the large trucks.

Weighing up to 60,000 pounds, semi-trucks are responsible for transporting heavy cargo on highways all over the United States. At high speeds, commercial trucks have a greater potential for causing injury and death to other drivers and passengers on the road, especially when transporting hazardous materials.

Some common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Unbalanced Load
  • Overloaded Truck
  • Taking turns at excessive speeds
  • Not allowing enough stopping distance
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driver fatigue
  • Failure to stay in designated truck lanes
  • Not respecting weather and road conditions
  • Failure to properly maintain a truck

Whether you were injured in a truck accident, or are the family member of a person who died in a truck accident, a Calabasas truck accident attorney can advise you about what steps need to be taken to file a personal injury claim or wrongful death suit.

Sometimes it can be difficult to prove fault in a trucking accident because of the many factors that can contribute to a crash. Not only can truck drivers be held responsible for accidents they cause, but so can part manufacturers, mechanics, safety inspectors, and trucking companies if their negligence in any way lead to the accident.

At the Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, our attorneys will conduct a scrupulous investigation regarding the cause of the accident, and work tirelessly to obtain evidence and witness testimony that will prove liability. Once liability has been determined, a truck accident attorney will use their experience and skill to negotiate a settlement amount that satisfies the victim's needs.
