Injured in a San Francisco Truck Accident?

Our Law Firm Can Take on the Big Trucking Companies!

When loaded to capacity, big rigs can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and reach more than 70 feet in length. These types of commercial vehicles can cause major destruction when a collision occurs. Additionally, due to the size of a big rig compared to a smaller vehicle, any crash involving an 18-wheeler can be potentially fatal.

If you were involved in a truck accident, do not simply settle for any amount that an insurance company may try to offer you. Oftentimes, an insurance company will try to force you to settle for an amount that is far less than what you are actually entitled to receive. With our San Francisco truck accident lawyers at your side, we can actively pursue the maximum amount of damages for your case.

What Are the Common Causes of Truck Accidents?

Commercial truck drivers are held to extremely high standards. Every truck driver is required to adhere to traffic laws established by the state of California, as well as federal regulations to ensure that all commercial drivers contribute to the safety of people on the roads and highways. Unfortunately, many commercial drivers are motivated by wage increases or bonuses to travel for excessive hours on the road without stopping or taking the mandatory rest periods. As a result, accidents can occur.

MOST TRUCK ACCIDENTS RESULT FROM THE FOLLOWING CAUSES:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving while tired / exhausted
  • Texting while behind the wheel
  • Reckless driving (ex: speeding and tailgating)
  • Failure to adhere to traffic laws and road signs
  • Failure to look before changing lanes
  • Auto part failure or equipment defects
