Competent Truck Accidents Lawyer Representing San Jose & Salinas Victims
Commercial vehicles such as trucks and 18-wheelers have an increased likelihood of causing injury due to their massive sizes. Accidents involving trucks tend to be more severe and cause greater injury than typical car-to-car accidents. The attorneys at Accident Recover Legal Center have seen countless cases of personal injury due to the negligence of trucks and we are here to help you secure the compensation you deserve.
A Higher Standard of Driving
Drivers of large commercial vehicles are held to stricter laws regarding safe transport to prevent serious accidents. They must obey federal rules for trucking, as well as those set forth by California’s Public Utilities Commission and cities and counties. For example, truck drivers are not permitted to drive continuously for more than eight hours uninterrupted or more than 14 hours total in one shift. Other regulations dictate which roads trucks can drive on and how heavy their load can be on said roads.
Getting the Compensation You Deserve
If you or a loved one has been injured because of the irresponsible actions of a truck driver, you deserve to be compensated for any medical bills, loss of wages or diminished income-earning potential. Depending on the severity of the accident, you may also be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering. Whatever your specific situation, our compassionate and effective truck accident attorneys will fight on your behalf to ensure you get the assistance you need. We’ll make sure the responsible parties pay for their mistakes so you can get on with your life with all the support you need.
