San Diego Truck Accident Lawyer

The busy roads in San Diego may seem to be entirely populated by stressed commuters and slightly lost tourists but, in reality, they also play host to a huge number of trucks and other commercial vehicles, each of which is driving against the clock to deliver their latest all-important haul.

While the trucking industry brings plenty of jobs to the region, the potential consequences when things go wrong can be disastrous. The size and weight of semi-trucks, big rigs and other commercial vehicles mean that your car stands little chance in a collision. As such, when you are involved in an auto accident involving a truck, it is likely that you will sustain some form of serious injury, meaning you are unable to work and provide for your family for some time.

You may know that you are entitled to recover monetary damages when you have been injured through no fault of your own but, when you are undergoing physical therapy and other medical treatment, the last thing you want to do is battle with insurance companies for a fair settlement.

When you hire one of our truck accident attorneys to act on your behalf, you can rest assured that your case is in expert hands, and that our decades of legal experience will be put to work pursuing the maximum settlement available to you.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in San Diego and Beyond

According to the United States Department of Transportation, truck accidents across the nation are much more common than you may think:

  • 500,000 truck accidents happen every year
  • Approximately 5,000 of these truck accidents result in fatalities
  • Over 87,000 people are injured in these collisions

While representing truck accident victims like you, our San Diego attorneys have identified the most common causes of these incidents as:

  • Driver fatigue, which can be a major issue when truck drivers are incentivized to deliver quicker and, therefore, tempted to skip rest breaks. It is estimated that driver fatigue causes 30% of all truck accidents
  • Reckless driving by other motorists forcing the truck driver to slam the brakes on suddenly. This can lead to skidding or jack-knifing. Motorists other than the truck driver cause some 75% of collisions
  • Distracted driving, most of which is due to using a cellphone while behind the wheel
  • Adverse weather conditions impacting the surface of the road, or the truck driver’s visibility
  • Defective vehicle components

Most Common Injuries Sustained in San Diego Truck Accidents

In addition to identifying the most common factors contributing to collisions, our San Diego truck accident attorneys have also become familiar with common injuries. Should you be involved in a collision, you are most likely to sustain the following injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Concussion
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Internal injuries or organ damage

If you have lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident, our San Diego lawyers can also file a wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf, providing you fall into one of the qualifying categories. Contact us today to discuss this in more detail.
