Orange County Truck Crash Victims Need a Tough Personal Injury Attorney
Orange County is a complex network of freeways, Interstates, routes and highways truckers use on their way to and from Los Angeles during cross-country cargo hauls. Big rig deliveries come into downtown Newport Beach, Anaheim and Santa Ana every day as well. Unfortunately, many truckers are so over-worked, they fall asleep behind the wheel of their semi-truck, jeopardizing the safety of others around them. In this region, 18-wheelers are often involved in car crashes, motorcycle accidents, bicycle wrecks and pedestrian injuries, causing serious injuries, if not truck crash deaths.
A Big Rig Collision Can Mean Dealing With Truck Company Insurance Adjusters
When fully loaded, a tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, and are sometimes carrying an illegal amount of cargo over that limit. When you compare that to an average 5,000-lb car, 300-lb motorbike or a mere bicyclist or person walking alongside a limited access highway, it's no wonder a commercial truck collision can result in catastrophic injuries. Many truck accident victims are intimidated by the trucker or truck company representatives. We can fight for your justice-call us today at (949) 757-0707.
If you were hit by a sleepy trucker driving recklessly on I-5, a distracted truck driver texting at the wheel of his or her big rig on the 405, a DUI trucker who jack-knifed on the 91, or a speeding trucker who overturned a rig on the Costa Mesa Freeway, it will be your word against the trucking company liability insurance adjusters and slick truck company lawyers. The police and the guilty trucker may not make sure to preserve the evidence of the truck wreck, which could impact your ability to prove it was the truck driver's fault. If the trucker is uninsured or doesn't have enough insurance, you've got an even bigger legal problem on your hands. No matter what, the truck company insurance adjuster will most likely pressure you to accept a "low-ball" settlement. Don't do it!
