Sacramento Truck Accident Attorney
We Have Recovered Millions for Our Clients
There are more than 15.5 million commercial trucks in the United States - an estimated 2 million of which are tractor-trailers. The massive size, weight, and bulk of these vehicles overwhelm regular passenger cars on American highways and present a serious safety threat in the event of accidents. Weighing up to 80,000 pounds, commercial trucks can cause extensive damage in a highway collision.
Contributing factors in trucking accidents often include, but are not limited to:
- Improperly maintained brakes
- Icy or slippery road conditions
- Poorly trained drivers
- Drug/alcohol use
- Driving while fatigued or distracted
- Unsecured loads
Investigating Liability in Truck Accident cases
Before proceeding, it is important to understand all the facets of your case. Was the truck driver negligent in the operation or maintenance of his / her vehicle? Had he/she been in full compliance with national trucking regulations established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration? Is the trucking company responsible for the accident in any way? These questions are crucial to the result of your claim, and our Sacramento truck accident lawyers are prepared to help you find answers.
When investigating a truck accident, attorneys usually look at evidence such as:
- Black box data
- Driver log books to determine if they violated hours of service rules
- Cell phone records
- GPS data
- Police reports
- Witness statements
Our team meticulously reviews the data to help determine the cause of your accident and prepare the right evidence for an effective claim.
