Don't Get Crushed by Trucker Negligence: Legal Help After a Truck Accident in Long Beach

Being involved in a truck accident can be a terrifying and life-altering experience. The size and weight disparity between trucks and cars often results in severe injuries for car occupants.

The Dangers of Tractor-Trailers and 18-Wheelers on Long Beach Roads

Large commercial trucks, also known as tractor-trailers or 18-wheelers, share the road with passenger vehicles but pose a much greater danger in the event of a collision. Due to their immense size and weight, even a minor collision with a truck can cause catastrophic injuries or death.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue: Truck drivers are often pressured to meet tight deadlines, leading to exhaustion and impaired driving.
  • Distracted driving: Using cell phones, eating, or other distractions can divert a truck driver’s attention from the road.
  • Improper vehicle maintenance: Neglected brakes, tires, or other mechanical issues can lead to equipment failure and accidents.
  • Overloaded cargo: Trucks exceeding weight limits can become unstable and difficult to control, increasing the risk of rollovers and accidents.

Protecting Yourself on the Road: Sharing the Road Safely with Large Trucks

While accidents can happen unexpectedly, there are steps you can take to minimize the risk of sharing the road with large trucks:

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions: Truck Accident Injuries

Seek immediate medical attention, even if you feel okay initially. Then, contact the police to report the accident. If possible, take pictures of the scene, your injuries, and any damage to vehicles involved. Don’t speak to the truck driver’s insurance company before consulting an attorney.
Truck accidents can be caused by various factors, including truck driver fatigue, speeding, distracted driving, aggressive driving, improper vehicle maintenance, and overloaded cargo.
The amount of compensation varies depending on the severity of your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and long-term impact on your life. Our lawyers will meticulously assess your case to determine the maximum compensation you deserve.
The length of your case depends on the specific circumstances. Our goal is to resolve your case as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, some cases involving complex factors or multiple parties may require litigation, which can take longer. We will keep you informed throughout the entire process.
Truck drivers are required to carry liability insurance. However, in rare cases, there may be insufficient coverage. We will explore all options to recover compensation, including your own underinsured motorist coverage or filing a lawsuit against the trucking company.

I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Thomas on a claim and was very pleased with the outcome. He was very thorough in explaining everything needed to get the best chance at the desired results.

I was lucky enough to have Mr. Nantais as my lawyer. I had spoken to several other workers' compensation lawyers before meeting with Mr. Nantais. Unlike the other lawyers, I found Mr. Nantais very easy to talk with right from the start. He understood what had happened to me with my work situation and showed compassion for my plight. What really impressed me was how well Mr. Nantais represented me when dealing with the opposing counsel. He did an excellent job advocating for my needs, and I was very happy with the case's outcome.
