Navigating the Complexities of an Injury or Death Claim After a Trucking Accident
With its strategic location, large population and multilane freeways heading in all directions, the San Diego metro area is prime territory for trucking accidents. Trucks heading to and from Mexico, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, the Midwest and other parts of the United States, as well as Canada, travel through our community at high rates of speed, full of heavy cargo. Traffic congestion and human error can increase the likelihood of a trucking accident – often with catastrophic consequences.
Even if your truck accident was relatively minor, chances are your injuries are serious if you were in a smaller vehicle. Big rigs, also known as semi trucks or 18-wheelers, are somewhat like warehouses on wheels. Their size, weight and momentum often spell disaster for occupants of cars and other vehicles.
The Law Eagles understand the seriousness of your medical and financial challenges if you or your loved one has been injured in a truck accident.
Our Attorneys Hold Liable Parties Responsible
Our lawyers start every truck accident case with two equally important lines of inquiry:
- Understanding the cause of the accident, which may include driver fatigue, a poorly maintained truck, traffic violations, or imbalanced cargo, to name a few examples
- Documenting the injuries and/or manner of death, such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, broken bones, crush injuries, burn injuries, or other
To get at the facts in these areas of investigation in a timely manner, our lawyers may work with accident reconstruction specialists, medical experts, and life care specialists.
At the same time, our attorneys will work hard to determine which insurers are involved and cut through the unnecessary and time-consuming finger-pointing between insurance representatives. We will strive to keep your truck accident case on track while ensuring that your settlement or verdict is sufficient for all aspects of your injury claim, which may include:
- Medical care
- Lost wage replacement
- Pain and suffering
