Injured in a Truck Accident? We'll Help You Receive a Settlement After a Serious Accident.

Fresno Truck Accident Attorney

Pursuing Maximum Compensation for Truck Accident Injuries

If you were injured in a trucking accident, you are likely left with expensive costs such as vehicle repair expenses, medical bills and other bills that are stacking up because of time you had to spend away from work. If your truck accident resulted from the mistakes of another person or entity, you have the right to seek compensation for the damages you suffered. Unfortunately, coming up against commercial insurance companies can often be a challenge—sometimes even more so than when you are dealing with other types of insurance companies. Oftentimes, commercial insurance companies are not willing to pay the full amount of compensation victims are rightfully due.

Instead of giving in to an inadequate settlement offer, let a competent attorney assist you. If your incident occurred in the Fresno, California area, our Fresno truck accident lawyers at Matiasic & Johnson LLP can provide you with the top-rate legal representation you are looking for. With more than 25 years of experience on our side, we are not afraid of taking on even the most challenging cases. We are highly knowledgeable about the trucking industry, as well as about the most effective strategies for advocating for our clients.

Facts About Fresno, CA

Fresno, which is located in Central California, is the San Joaquin Valley's largest metropolitan city, according to the city of Fresno's website. Because of this, the city serves as the commercial, industrial and financial capital of the San Joaquin Valley. Furthermore, Fresno County takes the No. 1 spot in the nation for agricultural production. The city of Fresno is California's fifth-largest city, as well as the state's largest inland city. In 2011, Fresno had a total of 501,362 residents and 156,724 households, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Four health care-related entities were among Fresno's top five employers in the private sector, according to the city's financial report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011. Community Medical Centers, Saint Agnes Medical Center and Permanente Medical Group took first through third place (in that order), and Children's Hospital took fourth place.

Cases and Injuries We Handle

Because of our extensive experience in our field, our team at Matiasic & Johnson LLP is prepared to handle claims and lawsuits related to all types of truck accidents. We handle jackknife accidents, underride accidents, truck rollovers and many other types of truck accidents. Whether you were injured by a truck collision that occurred on the freeway or on a street, we can help you. We are also able to handle cases that involve various types of truck accident injuries, whether they are extremely serious or more minor. A few of the common injuries we deal with include internal injuries, broken bones, disfigurement and brain injuries, among many others. In some tragic cases, the victim of the truck accident has actually died from his or her injuries. In these wrongful death cases, we can aid these victim's family members in pursing compensation from the negligent party.

One of our main goals in handling your case will be finding and demonstrating the cause of your truck accident. This is important because it will determine who is liable to pay for the damages. In some cases, the accident is the fault of the truck driver, such as when he or she was drunk or was texting while driving. When an accident is caused by unsecure cargo, the driver might be at fault if he or she failed to load or check the cargo properly. In other cases, the accident could have been caused by employer negligence, such as when the trucking company failed to comply with certain trucking regulations. These might be regulations concerning hours-of-service or truck inspections. When you work with us, you can rest assured that we are conducting an in-depth truck accident investigation for the benefit of your case.
