Oakley Truck Accident Lawyer

truck

Oakley sits along the scenic California Delta. Being centrally located between San Francisco and Sacramento, it is common to see large commercial trucks carrying loads of goods, produce, and other materials on local highways and streets. Sharing the road with big rigs can be risky. These large vehicles can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When they are involved in an accident with passenger cars, the damage tends to be severe for the occupants in the smaller vehicles.

Types of Serious Accident Cases We Handle

We only take accident cases that involve a significant injury. While we handle many car injury cases, we also take on other types of injury claims, including:

Why Are Large Trucks So Dangerous?

Truckers are usually attentive drivers and do everything they can to avoid accidents. However, no matter how careful trucker drivers are, their vehicles still pose a danger to smaller vehicles on the road. Since big rigs are difficult to maneuver and take longer to brake, it's tough for truck drivers to respond quickly to changing road conditions.

While it is impossible to predict when a truck collision will occur, it is possible to reduce your risk of being involved in one by learning how to share the road with large trucks.

Taking Quick Action is Critical

Semi-trucks are owned and operated by large trucking companies. With so many vehicles on the road, the companies are aware they risk their trucks being involved in accidents. Trucking companies are ready to build a defense against financial responsibility. The company has its own in-house legal team to respond to the accident and disclaim responsibility for damages.

Unfortunately, this kind of fast and aggressive legal defense can make it difficult for crash survivors to claim the full compensation they need to pay for lost income, medical bills, and other damages.

How To Find a Trustworthy Injury Lawyer

Finding a reputable injury lawyer to handle your injury case is essential, but few people know how to find the best attorney. However, choosing a great attorney isn't tricky if your know what to look for. When searching for a lawyer, consider the following:

  • Reputation: Your lawyer should have great reviews and ratings on their online profiles. Check review sites like Google and Yelp. Remember to also check Avvo, a site specifically for rating lawyers.
  • Resources: A severe injury case can take both time and money. Your attorney should have the resources to do everything possible to help you win your case and take your case to court.
  • Results: Your lawyer should have a proven history of successfully resolving injury cases. Check their website for their work history of settlements and verdicts.
