Understanding the Risks of Truck Accidents in Southern California

Every year, close to 4,000 people are killed in trucking accidents across the United States. Those numbers have remained more or less consistent over the years, in spite of the continuing decline in motor vehicle accidents. That’s because even though trucking accidents are fewer in number, they typically result in multiple fatalities or injuries due to the size and weight of the vehicles involved.

Truck Accident Claims and Federal Safety Regulations

Trucking companies are subject to federal regulations set out by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Those regulations involve the hiring and recruitment of drivers, alcohol and drug testing of drivers, maintenance of the truck, and a number of other aspects of trucking safety. When a trucking company fails to adhere to those regulations, it can cause an accident, and the company can be held liable. The regulations also require at least $750,000 to $5 million of liability insurance coverage, depending on what materials are being transported.

What To Do After a Trucking Accident

While you are dazed, stressed, and confused after a typical trucking accident, the trucking company is working overtime with its insurance company to ensure that liability against them is limited or avoided. They do this by sending their attorneys to the accident scene to collect the evidence, and by combing through their event data recorders, GPS trackers, and DashCam videos.

You must begin working to protect your rights immediately following a trucking accident. Speak to an attorney at our firm about sending a spoliation letter that will specifically require the trucking company to hold onto all the raw pieces of information that you need in order to prevail in a claim. You are legally allowed to send a letter like this, and the trucking company must retain copies of evidence mentioned in your letter. We offer our services for residents throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.

Our Clients' Success Stories

  • "Justice was done."
    Dear Mr. Effres, I was the juror that took your card and assured you I’d call, as time is such a premium in our lives, dropping you a line is much easier. Thank you for the offer of our suggestions and/or comments. What impressed me the most and what seemed the be a determining factor was the diligence in which you presented the evidence, your depth of conviction for Maria’s case was deeply felt. Your calmness in dealing with the judge with the study in the strength of the human character! The only suggestion I would make (and this is coming from a color consultant point of view) would be to wear dark suits, white shirt and a striking tie (LOVE THE SCALE OF JUSTICE TIE), other than that – change nothing. Please pass on my best wishes to Maria even though the money could not begin to suffice for her injury the quality of her life may be enhanced, they are a beautiful family and were represented by a compassionate, thorough, competent lawyer. Justice was done. God bless you. by K. R.
