Oakley Truck Accident Lawyer
Oakley sits along the scenic California Delta. Locally 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.Contacting an Oakley Truck Accident Attorney for Help

Since injuries in a truck accident tend to be catastrophic, cases involving large commercial vehicles often involve money. Trucking companies and insurance carriers will spend considerable resources to avoid paying the fair compensation that accident survivors genuinely deserve.
Our law firm has exclusively handled accident cases that involve severe or fatal injuries since 1982. Our legal team consists of seasoned experts who can negotiate with insurance companies and take cases to trial to ensure you receive fair compensation.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:
- Amputation injuries
- Bone fractures
- Burn injuries
- Chest trauma
- Internal injuries
- Spinal cord trauma
- Traumatic brain injuries
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. 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, reducing your risk of being involved in one is possible by learning how to share the road with large trucks.

Semi trucks are owned and operated by large trucking companies. With so many vehicles on the road, the companies know they risk their trucks being involved in accidents. Trucking companies are ready to build a defense against financial responsibility. The company has its in-house legal team to respond to the accident and disclaim responsibility for damages.
Unfortunately, this fast and aggressive legal defense can make it difficult for crash survivors to claim the total 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 you 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.
