You and your family are driving down a Los Angeles road and you are sitting at a red light. The light turns green, and so you confidently drive through the intersection. Just then, you hear the deafening sound of the screeching tires of an 18 wheel semi-truck. You realize there is nothing that you can do to get your vehicle out of the way in time. Just before everything goes black, your last thought is about the safety and well-being of your family.
At Guldjian Law, we have seen similar circumstances play out time and time again for our clients who have been the victims of a truck accident. Semi-truck accidents comprise a large number of the accidents that happen on Los Angeles roads. Because of the unbelievable power and size of these trucks, the outcome of a truck colliding with a passenger vehicle is usually disastrous. When there are injuries and when there are fatalities, sadly it is the passengers of the automobile who suffer the most.
The state of California and the federal government understand how dangerous semi-trucks can be on the road. For this reason, the government has placed stricter restrictions on how truck drivers can operate their vehicle. In many cases, when there is an accident involving a truck, it is because some of these regulations have been overlooked.
At Guldjian Law APC, we are extremely familiar with the regulations that dictate how a truck should be operated. We know the weak spots in the typical defense that trucking companies and insurance companies use to try to rob truck accident victims of the financial compensation they deserve.
Determining liability in a truck accident is a lot more complicated than determining liability in an accident involving two automobiles. This is because an 80,000-pound truck is usually full of merchandise from a particular company, is owned by another company, is operated by a driver, and is managed by another entity. Each one of these individuals or companies has their own lawyers and their own insurance company. Yet, some or all of them may be responsible for the accident.
Our experienced Los Angeles truck accident attorney’s we work with trained investigators and expert witnesses to thoroughly examine your case and get to the bottom of who is responsible for your accident. Then, we work diligently to see to it that they are forced to provide you the compensation you deserve as you and your family recover from a traumatic truck accident.
