Pursuing Full Compensation For Truck Accident Victims
Because commercial trucks weigh so much more than your typical passenger vehicle, accidents often result in devastating, life-altering injuries or fatalities. If you or a loved one was involved in a trucking accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. However, it’s important to work with an attorney who understands the intricacies of these cases.
At Ball, Bonholtzer & Evans in Pasadena, our knowledgeable attorneys can advise you of your rights and help you take legal action. Our trial lawyers have recovered millions for injury victims who were involved in truck accidents. We also represent truck drivers who have been injured in accidents on the job.
Why Do These Tragic Accidents Happen?
While many commercial truck drivers are skilled and cautious, the sheer size and weight of semitrucks and 18-wheelers can sometimes contribute to accidents. When the trucks are overloaded, for instance, it takes far longer for them to come to a stop, and truckers may easily misjudge the braking distance.
There are also times when the fault lies with the trucking company. For example, if the trucking company sets unrealistic schedules for their drivers, it can encourage the truckers to speed or drive without sleep. Lack of proper training for drivers can be another serious issue.
At Ball, Bonholtzer & Evans, we will examine the case thoroughly and look for evidence of negligence on the part of the trucker or trucking company. If the accident was caused by negligence, we will vigorously advocate for maximum compensation on your behalf.
