Costa Mesa CA Truck Accident Lawyer You Can Trust
Count on attorney Dan Carlton after your collision. We can help
Orange County is a complex network of freeways, Interstates, routes and highways truckers use to wind their way through the greater Los Angeles area. Tractor-trailers, big rigs and other commercial vehicles frequently make their way through Costa Mesa, Irvine and other parts of Orange County.
Unfortunately, accidents caused by commercial truck drivers often occur in Southern California. When they do, the injuries sustained by people in other vehicles (or pedestrians or cyclists) are often severe or even fatal.
Knowing what to do after an accident involving an 18-wheeler or another, large commercial truck in Orange County can be confusing. That's why we want to help. At the Law Offices of Daniel C. Carlton, we can handle all the legal issues that often come up after such collisions. That's because attorney Dan Carlton has been handling such complicated cases for more than 40 years in Southern California.
Big rig collisions are often complicated
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, truck companies and their insurance providers. Often, these people put pressure on accident victims to accept the first lowball offer they make, even though such a settlement doesn't even come close to covering all accident-related expenses.
