Orange County and Riverside County are major hubs of transportation and commerce in Southern California. That means large trucks on our highways are a common sight. Lots of large trucks, such as tractor-trailers, construction vehicles and freight vans, inevitably results in serious traffic accidents. For drivers and passengers in cars, involvement in a truck accident can be incredibly destructive, and even fatal.
According to the California Highway Patrol, there were 236 large truck crashes that resulted in injury and death on California's roads in 2009.
We have offices in Santa Ana and Irvine, in Orange County, and we are prepared to help you investigate an injury or a wrongful death truck accident.

How It Works
As a personal injury law firm, our lawyers commonly work with truck accident claims. We gather information, such as accident reports and driver logs, and in some cases, we hire trucking experts and accident reconstruction specialists to evaluate the evidence and the duties of the drivers and to re-create the incident, taking into consideration the traffic, roadways, speeds and driving conditions at the time of the trucking accident. Such an investigation is vital to a proper assessment and to determine specifically what happened and what person or entity should be held accountable for the losses and damages.
Through our years of experience, we have found that common causes of heavy truck accidents are:
- Driver fatigue
- Improper loading
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Unlicensed or improperly trained drivers
Our goal is to determine accident liability and make sure that you get the full amount of compensation you deserve for your injuries, lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and property damage. Contact us today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation.
