   Los Angeles Truck Accident Lawyers

A truck accident can cause serious injuries or fatalities, depending on the circumstances. But if one of the vehicles involved happens to be a large truck or tractor-trailer, the consequences are sure to be severe due to the truck's massive size and weight. In many cases the truck driver is at fault for the accident, but it's the people in the passenger car who suffer the most severe injuries.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck crash you may be entitled to compensation. The Los Angeles truck accident law firm Triphon Injury Law can help.

Causes Of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents, including wrecks involving tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, big rigs, semi-trucks and dump trucks, are most often caused by:
  • Driver's failure to control speed or to check cross-traffic.
  • Failing to slow down in time to avoid striking another vehicle in the rear.
  • Forcing cars, motorcycles or smaller trucks off a highway when changing lanes.
  • Sideswipe and head-on collisions caused by a driver not entirely in the proper lane.
  • Squeeze plays and shutouts in which the driver fails to yield to avoid an accident.
  • Failure to operate at a speed safe for road, weather or traffic conditions.
  • Misjudging available clearance, such as at overpasses.
  • Mechanical defects that should have been discovered during inspections.
Determining the exact cause of a truck accident is critical to your claim for compensation after an accident. The skill and commitment to investigate the contributing factors in a truck accident often mean the difference between winning and losing. Prompt action must be taken to gather evidence before valuable information is lost and to identify the at-fault parties, insurance companies, and causation factors involved in your accident.

When truck collisions occur, trucking companies involved in the accident often send representatives to the accident scene. These agents work to handle everything at the scene of the truck accident so that they can limit or mitigate their company's liability. These companies' representatives know that the ideal time to confront an accident victim is immediately following the event. Don't talk to them!
