Truck Accident Lawyer

Trucks like semi-trucks, tractor trailers, or 18-wheelers cause serious accidents. Government statistics show that in 2012 25,000 people were hurt in large truck accidents. There are often special rules that apply to truck drivers and claims in California can be brought against both the truck driver and the trucking company. Truck accidents are caused by truck drivers who have worked too many hours and are tired, fail to pay attention to traffic, are under the influence, drive too fast, make wide turns, or lose part of a load on the road.

The truck accident lawyers at RAHMAN LAW PC are aggressive and know the ins and outs of truck accident litigation. If you are hit by a truck or objects that come off of a truck, you need a lawyer who has the resources to devote to a full investigation into not only the truck driver but the trucking company and the trucking company’s policies and procedures. Early investigation is key to a successful truck accident case.

When you are injured in a truck accident, the truck driver and the trucking company may be responsible for your losses or damages. Damages place a monetary value on the harm done. Types of damages allowable in a personal injury matter include general damages, such as pain and suffering, special damages, such as medical bills, lost wages and property damage and punitive damages. Punitive or exemplary damages may be awarded in addition to compensatory damages only in actions in which the defendant’s conduct was egregious. If a truck accident leads to a catastrophic injury a wrongful death claim can be made. For more information about your rights, read our Know Your Rights guide.
