Injured in a Trucking Accident
One of the most terrifying accidents a motorist can have is with a large truck. Not only because of how violent the collision is‚ but because of the horrible amount of damage that follows an accident with a truck. If you or a loved one has been involved in a tractor trailer accident‚ the Oceanside auto accident attorneys at the Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers empathize with your situation and want you to know that help is available. In most situations‚ accidents with large trucks lead to life-changing injuries for those involved – including the driver of the big rig. In our experience‚ it’s common for victims of truck accidents to suffer one or more of the following damages:
- Lifelong pain and suffering
- Severe burns and lacerations
- Compound fractures and shattering
- Debilitating neck and spinal cord trauma
- Severe head trauma and extensive brain damage
If you have experienced anyone of these injuries because of an accident that was caused by no fault of your own‚ then you may have grounds to take legal action against the at-fault party. But you will need strong representation to go against the trucking firm and their insurance carrier. Even if you may clearly be the victim in this accident‚ the trucking industry doesn’t make it easy for families who have been negatively impacted by one of their drivers. That is why at the Jurewitz Law Group | Injury & Accident Lawyers we will use every resource available to secure the settlement you deserve and the justice you demand.

Who is Responsible For My Accident?
This is one of the most important questions to answer in any personal injury claim. In a truck accident‚ it becomes significantly more complicated because of the number of people involved with the actual operation of a truck. In a vast majority of the collisions‚ the driver of the truck is responsible for any accident that happens‚ as they are the ones actually driving the vehicle. They could be working well over their permitted time behind the wheel. They could be distracted. They could even be intoxicated. Whatever the case may be‚ the fault starts and ends with the driver.
With that said‚ there are other possibilities. The truck itself could have a serious design flaw built into it that lead to the vehicle malfunctioning. The shipping agency that manages the trucks could be pushing their drivers to the point of total exhaustion. Or the road itself could be to blame – with a lack of signage and poor upkeep leading to a jackknife. In anyone of these instances‚ a great deal of research and evidence is required to make the case. This means you need a team with experience‚ resources and tenacity.
