Why You Should Choose Our California Trucking Accident Firm

If you have been injured in a trucking accident in California, you need a personal injury attorney on your side. Better yet, you can hire a lawyer who specializes in truck accidents so that you can be sure you are getting the best, most informed aid that is available. That is why the attorneys at Matiasic & Johnson LLP exist. They want to give you the representation that you need to get a large settlement or be compensated for your injuries in a trucking accident. Truck accidents aren’t the same as car accidents, because the trucker is typically an employee who was injured in an on-the-job injury. If you have been injured in a trucking accident, then you may need to seek compensation from the company that employed the trucker. If you are a trucker who was harmed in an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you need to litigate against your employer for the damages that you deserve.

In fact, at Matiasic & Johnson LLP we can help in any delivery truck accidents, under-ride accidents, jackknife accidents, or truck rollovers that you are dealing with. As well, we aren’t afraid to get our hands dirty in the event of a trucking regulation lawsuit or an employer negligence issue. We will even come alongside bereft families who lost their loved one in a wrongful death accident caused by a truck collision. Matiasic & Johnson LLP isn’t just another law firm; they are a hardworking and notable firm that has been acclaimed by variety of institutions.

We have more than 25 years of combined experience as trucking accident attorneys in California, so we are very familiar with the many implications of litigation in one of these cases. Check out our Avvo profile if you want more proof that we are all that we say we are. There are a variety of different types of truck accidents that merit different settlements, and an investigator must also evaluate the condition of the roads and the activity of surrounding cars at the time of the crash. As well, if an unreasonable employer refused to allow his or her employees to rest between driving, or over-exhausted the driver, than this could be the reason for a crash. Many times truckers will fall asleep at the wheel when they are pushed too hard.
