Oroville Truck Accident Lawyer

Oroville Truck Accident Lawyer

Oroville is a beautiful Northern California City located right at the base of the Sierra Nevadas along the Plumas National Forest. The city is considered the gateway to Feather River and Lake Oroville recreational areas which means that area residents have easy access to California’s second-largest lake year-round. With so many activities to take part in, including skiing, swimming, sailing, camping, and fishing, it’s easy to see how people fall in love with Oroville.

While Oroville is a great place to live, it’s also the seat of the Butte County government, home to over 15,000 people, and located right on one of the area’s largest highways. All of this put together means that Oroville can see relatively high amounts of vehicle traffic, which means that it also sees a fair number of truck accidents.

Oroville Truck Accident Survivors Seeking Legal Representation

If you’ve been in an Oroville truck accident, you are probably wondering how to even begin. Many people feel overwhelmed by their day-to-day life after being involved in a crash and struggle to manage their pain while worrying about taking care of bills, work, and regaining their health.

All of these things are normal for survivors of truck accidents, and most people who survive truck accidents suffer serious injuries. Some of the more common injuries I’ve seen representing truck accident survivors since 1982 include the following:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries - One of the most serious and common types of accident trauma.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries - Damaged spinal cords can lead to the loss of sensation or function in one or more areas of the body.
  • Back Injuries - Severe strain, sprains, damaged vertebrae, herniated disks, and fractures can all have a major impact on your life.
  • Internal Injuries - Injuries to internal organs such as the kidneys, liver, lungs, heart, etc. are often caused by fractured ribs and are frequently life-threatening.
  • Fractured Bones - a bone fracture can take a long time to heal and often results in limited mobility for the injured person.

Many of the people I’ve worked with have also suffered injuries that aren’t immediately apparent. Being in a truck accident can be traumatic, and it’s common to be left with psychological injuries as a result. Issues such as emotional distress, depression, persistent anxiety, and post-traumatic stress can be challenging to deal with and sometimes permanently affect accident survivors.

Those who’ve been in truck accidents may not truly comprehend the extent to which these issues can affect their lives and the lives of the people around them. However, the effects of truck accident injuries are very real and can dramatically change many aspects of your relationships, career, self-image, and quality of life.

Serious Injury Cases

My law firm only handles cases that involve a severe injury. By focusing my practice on helping people who’ve suffered major injuries, I have been able to gain decades of experience dealing with high-stakes cases. This means that my team and I are skilled and effective at dealing with insurers, trucking companies, and other parties who will put up a fight and invest both time and money to disclaim responsibility after accidents.

If you are unsure of whether or not your injuries are severe enough, I would still encourage you to contact me. Even if your case isn’t right for my firm, I have decades of experience in personal injury law and can likely refer you to a quality attorney who may be able to help you.
