Fighting for Victims Injured by Trucks, Vans & Commercial Vehicles

When tractor-trailers, delivery vans, box trucks, and other commercial vehicles are involved in accidents, the potential for significant injuries and losses increases dramatically. Because these vehicles are typically owned by corporations, it is also more likely that victims will face disputes to their claims.

If you or your loved one has been injured in an accident involving any type of truck, experienced legal counsel is critical. Proven injury lawyers can help you determine fault and liability for your trucking accident, and pursue the full amount of compensation for your damages.

At Drake Law Firm, our Woodland Hills truck accident lawyers have recovered millions for accident victims. If you are exploring your rights for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, we are available to review your case and explain what we can do to help.

Who Can I Hold Responsible for My Trucking Accident?

The objective in personal injury cases is to hold an at-fault person or entity liable, or financially responsible, for damages suffered by victims.

Liability determinations are a key component of any injury case, and require extensive investigation, evidence gathering, and legal work based on the specific facts involved. 

Examples of defendants in trucking cases:

  • A trucking company responsible for negligent drivers or safety violations
  • Another motorist who caused or contributed to a trucking crash
  • A delivery service whose van or delivery truck caused a crash
  • A government agency or contractor responsible for city-truck accidents 
  • The manufacturer of a commercial truck or defective product
  • A property owner who failed to address known hazards on their land

State & Federal Trucking Regulations

Large trucks pose significant risks to public safety, which is why truck drivers, delivery companies, and commercial trucking operators are subject to many laws and regulations.

Like other motorists, truck drivers have legal obligations to obey traffic laws and safely operate their vehicles. A driver or company’s failure to exercise reasonable care could constitute a breach of duty and give rise to legal action from victims harmed by negligence.

Commercial trucking operators are also subject to many state and federal regulations designed to reduce some of the most pressing safety risks. Examples include:

  • Proper truck driver licensing and training
  • Driver health certification and drug testing
  • Adequate and regular vehicle maintenance
  • Hours-of-Service rules, to prevent drowsy driving
  • Cargo loading and securement regulations
  • Transportation of hazardous substances

When truckers or their employers violate important regulations and cause accidents as a result, they can be held liable by government regulators and by the victims they harm. At Drake Law Firm, our truck accident attorneys know the regulations that apply to various trucking operations and commercial vehicles and meticulously review accidents to determine if any violations occurred. 

Compensation for Your Truck Accident Damages

Truck accidents are notorious for their increased likelihood of serious and fatal injuries, as well as the significant setbacks they can place on victims and their families.

If you and your family has suffered losses arising from a truck accident, a personal injury claim can help hold the at-fault party liable for your damages, which may include:

  • ER and hospital expenses
  • Chiropractic care, therapy, and rehabilitation
  • Medications, medical devices, surgery, and other treatment
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income and lost future wages
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Property damage / vehicle repairs
