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.

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.
