Millions of Dollars Successfully Recovered Let Our Award-Winning Team Pursue Maximum Compensation

Roseville Truck Accident Lawyer

Recovering Millions for Injury Victims Throughout Northern California

Due to the sheer size and weight of a commercial truck, the consequences of an accident can be devastating. Large trucks, like tractor-trailers, big rigs, or eighteen-wheelers, weigh up to 20 times more than a passenger car, almost guaranteeing the destruction of smaller vehicles involved in a crash. Medical expenses and psychological injuries from a commercial truck accident can be overwhelming, which is why it’s important to enlist legal guidance as soon as possible. At the Law Offices of Larry S. Buckley, our Roseville personal injury attorneys can help you navigate the legal settlement process and get you the money you deserve.

Truck Accident Causes

Despite strict federal trucking regulations, truck accidents may be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Speeding
  • Fatigue
  • Aggressive driving
  • Mechanical failure
  • Drugs or alcohol

According to a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), fatigue is a leading cause of commercial truck accidents, making up 13%. Unrealistic expectations and packed schedules force workers to bypass regulations, because truck drivers may feel at risk of losing their job. Unfortunately, driver fatigue can lead to slower reaction times, trouble focusing, and poor judgment.

Commercial Truck Accident Liability

In a commercial truck accident that was the result of negligence or misconduct, you may be able to pursue compensation from the following parties:

  • The truck driver: Drivers sometimes drive recklessly or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, both of which can place blame on them.
  • The trucking company: If the owner of the truck forces a driver to engage in dangerous behavior, they can be held liable for an accident
  • The cargo company: A cargo company, which is in charge of loading goods onto a truck, can be held liable for an accident if they improperly load or overload cargo.
  • The truck manufacturer: A driver can operate their vehicle as safe as possible and still get in an accident if the truck malfunctions. A defective truck may be the fault of the truck manufacturer.
  • The maintenance and repair company: Trucking companies sometimes hire third parties to check on their trucks. If they fail to properly inspect the vehicles, they may be held accountable.
