Irvine Truck Accident Lawyers
We Stake Our Reputation on Your Recovery
In the United States, 4,000 people die in large truck accidents every year, and over 100,000 are injured. The death toll is staggering — the equivalent of a passenger jet crashing every week of the year, killing everyone on board. Those who survive truck accidents often suffer from life-altering injuries that require long-term recovery.
The victims of negligent truck drivers often have extensive damages to pay following an accident, and must confront complicated legal processes to recover compensation for those damages. At RMD Law, our lawyers will be able to explain why truck cases are unique and different from a run-of-the-mill auto accident, and how we can protect your rights. RMD Law is a highly rated truck accident injury law firm located in Irvine. Contact us to speak with an experienced accident attorney about your case, how to recover compensation, and what steps you should take next.
What Makes Truck Accident Cases Unique
Truck accidents differ from other vehicle collisions because of the issues that can arise during litigation, and the severity of the injuries that can result.
The legal processes following a truck accident can seem intimidating, because truck drivers are backed by their employer, their legal team, and their insurance provider. With a team of people supporting them, it may appear that truckers have an advantage during an accident claim. However, truck drivers are also subject to strict regulations. They are required to maintain comprehensive records, so any violation will be on file and can be used as evidence of liability. Our Orange County truck accident attorneys understand the complexities of 18-wheeler collisions, and are prepared to use our knowledge to represent you.
Collisions with semi-trucks often result in brain injuries, spine injuries, bone fractures, burns, and other injuries that require intensive surgery and rehabilitation. The victims of 18-wheeler accidents commonly are left with expensive medical bills and the costs that arise from being unable to work.
Truck accidents are particularly devastating in many ways:
Trucks are massive vehicles and a collision involves high-speed and heavy impact forces. A seemingly minor mistake made by the driver of a passenger car, such as a lane change without a turn signal, can mean a multi-car pileup and great injury when an 18-wheeler is involved.
Truck drivers are under great pressure to drive long hours and deliver supplies on time. Although most trips end safely, it is inevitable that trucks will crash given that there are about 15.5 million trucks moving 9.4 billion tons of freight in a given year.
Both Federal and State law recognizes the risks that the trucking industry creates for ordinary drivers on the road. Indeed, because trucking companies use these vehicles to make money, their drivers must be commercially licensed, and commercial drivers must carry far more insurance than regular road users – a minimum of $750,000 in California, and usually in excess of $1 million dollars. In contrast, regular drivers must carry just $15,000 in liability coverage.
