Tractor Trailer Accidents in Los Angeles

Tractor Trailer Accident Attorney Serving Los Angeles

While driving into the Los Angeles basin it is a common sight to see numerous tractor trailers on state highways. With so much commerce occurring 24-hours a day, there are bound to be a high level of injury accidents involving trucks. The weight, size and configuration of tractor trailer rigs is much different than that of normal motor vehicles, even that of other trucks. Tractor trailers weigh up to 80,000 pounds, so it is no wonder they take a considerably longer to slow down and bring to a stop. Further these giants have much larger blind spots, and when a driver misjudges these differences, it can prove deadly, especially for the occupants of the smaller vehicle. When you have been injured or you have lost a loved one in a tractor trailer accident, it is important to consult a Los Angeles truck accident attorney to determine your options for compensation.

Los Angeles Tractor Trailer Accident Survivor's Advocate

If you have witnessed the damage a tractor trailer rig can cause when out of control, you have likely never forgotten it. Poor road conditions or negligent driving can cause jackknife accidents which can literally crush car and victim between the truck body and trailer. Head-on accidents rear-end accidents and rollover accidents with one of these big rigs often end in fatalities.

When a tired driver is behind the wheel of a large commercial truck, he can be as impaired as a negligent driver in a DUI and truck accident. Often fatigued drivers rely on drugs to keep awake on a long run, and become responsible for drug and truck accidents.

Motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians alike have little protection against a careless, tractor trailer driver. Injuries sustained in accidents with trucks range from trauma to knees and neck and shoulders to severe back and spinal cord, as well as TBI, traumatic brain injury. Truck and motorcycle accidents, truck and pedestrian accidents and truck bicycle accidents often result in fatal injuries and may be cause for a wrongful death claim.

Once you have been involved in an accident with a tractor trailer, you can count on the fact that the truck driver and the trucking company will be consulting their attorneys to protect themselves from a lawsuit.

For this reason it is vital to contact a Los Angeles truck accident attorney from the firm today for the legal representation you need to fight for your rights.
