Trucks come in all shapes and sizes. Regular trucks that are driven by most people are pickup-sized or slightly larger; some are capable of hauling trailers and other utilities, for example. Smaller trucks that are used for commercial purposes include FedEx and UPS vehicles, as well as small delivery trucks to local businesses. However, there are also many large trucks that transport numerous vehicles at a time, semi-trucks y tractor trailers, 18 wheelers, and more. An accident with any truck can lead to severe injuries, but the larger the vehicle, the more likely it is that you will have more devastating consequences. You may have been hurt in a truck accident in the Palmdale area; if so, a Palmdale truck accident attorney can help you receive the compensation you need. Our highly talented lawyers at the Downtown LA Group will be on top of your case from start to finish, and we promise to work around the clock to ensure that you are amply covered.
There are over 500,000 truck accidents each year, with 5,000 deaths resulting from them. These accidents occur all over – from highways and freeways to residential and local streets to back roads and service roads. Accidentes de camiones are more likely in highly populated areas where the driver might not be able to account for every vehicle that is nearby.
There can be various causes of truck accidents. In some instances, other cars simply do not know the safest methods to driving around trucks. For safety reasons, many trucks must stay in the right lane and drive no faster than 55 mph. Other drivers may try to pass trucks on the right, tailgate them so that the trucker does not know they’re behind the vehicle, stop short in front of them, and ignore various wide turn and wide load signs. In addition to the mistakes that regular drivers make, though, truck drivers also contribute to accidents by their own negligence. Many drivers are on the road to transport goods from one location to another, and as a result, they have deadlines they must adhere to. They sometimes drive across various states or counties. Businesses that employ these individuals usually have some kind of insurance to cover any potential accidents.

A truck accident can be severe and have disastrous results, but if you were not at fault for the crash, contact a Palmdale truck accident attorney today at (855) 339-8879. We will help you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Because of the size of trucks, accidents are usually worse, even at similar rates of speed. A 30 mph car crash may not yield nearly the amount of damage as an equal truck accident. Further, of the 5,000 truck accident fatalities per year, only 700 of those individuals are the truck drivers themselves. This means that the other individual in the accident is even more at risk of serious injury than the trucker. Truck accident injuries can range from minor to serious. We have compiled a list of some of the most often-seen injuries.

If you suffered injuries from a truck accident, you should get medical treatment as quickly as possible. Your damages may need to be treated immediately – failure to do so could result in permanent ill effects. The type of accident you are involved in can also raise the risk of certain injuries. For example, a rear-end crash can result in more back and neck injuries, while a head-on collision raises the possibility of blunt force trauma to the chest and head. In the event of injuries from a truck crash, reach out to one of our Palmdale truck accident attorneys as soon as you can.

Instead, you should do the following to ensure that you have the highest rate of success with your claim:

According to California law, you only have 2 years from the date of the injury to file a claim against the responsible party. If you were not able to file a lawsuit within that time, you won’t be able to receive any restitution at any point. Although 2 years seems like a lot, in truth, it is a very short amount of time that could be squandered because you did not connect the injury to the accident. Our lawyers will make sure that you have enough time to file your claim and will submit it for you. We will also help you determine if you are eligible for any suspensions of the statute of limitations. Minors do not have to adhere to the statute until they turn 18, for example, and those who are mentally or physically ill-equipped to take action can wait until they are capable before the deadline starts.
The amount of money you can get from a truck accident claim is dependent on the insurance agent’s offer. The agent will consider how injured you were and how much of an impact those injuries had on your life and career. If they were particularly severe and had a profound effect, your settlement offer may be over $1,000,000. The death of a loved one could increase that settlement to over $4,000,000. On the other hand, a simple dislocated shoulder, while painful and preventing you from working, may not even net you $100,000. It will be up to an attorney to negotiate the best deal from the agent. We will strive to bring you the maximum compensation available under the law. This means that we’ll work to get you coverage of the following:
Don’t let the truck driver and insurance company get away without paying you your rightful restitution. Let a truck accident attorney in Palmdale handle your case for you.
