California Trucking Crash Attorneys
Attorneys at Marin Litigators have helped people obtain compensation and damages after truck crashes that occurred because of driver negligence, defective equipment or improperly loaded trucks. There are numerous roadways that are particularly dangerous; our cases have included accidents that took place on highways such as Route 37, Highway 101 and on bridges, such as the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Investigating the Truck Accident
Our lawyers are successful because of their persistence when investigating an accident. If a client is involved in a big rig wreck, we, along with our investigators will:
- Review the information provided by the truck’s black box
- Review the driver’s training and driving records
- Review the maintenance logs of the specific truck
- Review the personal log that all drivers keep according to law
- Determine whether defective equipment played a role in the accident
- Determine who loaded the truck and whether the load was properly balanced
The information that we obtain from our investigation may reveal that the driver had been on the road longer than allowed by law; that the tires, brakes and other components of the truck were not properly maintained; that the driver had a history of accidents; that the truck was overweight and avoided required scales; that the truck was improperly loaded, causing it to tip. Issues such as these can be among the causes of truck accidents. Our attorneys know how to develop the facts and build strong cases.
Truck accidents can result in serious injuries, including head, neck and spine injuries, amputation, burns, fractures and catastrophic internal injuries. Truck accidents can also be fatal, and family members of victims may be able to present claims for wrongful death.
