Were You Injured by Another Driver?

If you have been injured in a truck accident, it is important to get in touch with a Los Angeles truck accident lawyer immediately to collect evidence and determine the parties liable in your claim.

For more than 35 years, the trucking accident attorneys at the Los Angeles personal injury law firm of Effres & Associates have helped victims of truck accidents recover compensation, including medical costs and other damages, throughout Southern California.

The Dangers of Trucking Accidents

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.

Federal 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.
