Los Angeles Truck Accident Lawyer

Unyielding representation for serious accidents.

Truck accidents are a serious matter that can change a victim’s life in an instant. These accidents can have severe, if not deadly, consequences. If you were injured in a truck collision, you need a personal injury attorney who has extensive experience handling these kinds of cases.

Whether we can negotiate a settlement or we have to take your case to trial, the Los Angeles truck accident lawyers at Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP are here to help you seek justice. We have what it takes to help you obtain a favorable outcome.

Common Causes of Truck Crashes

Though truck accidents do not occur as frequently as passenger car accidents, they are still a serious and sometimes fatal possibility.

Truck accidents are often caused by:

  • Fatigued drivers who operate their trucks longer than is legally allowed
  • Overloaded vehicles
  • Drunk driving
  • Improperly trained or unqualified drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Defective truck equipment
  • Aggressive driving

Depending on the circumstances of the truck wreck, a Los Angeles attorney will use a variety of means – such as witness testimonies, the truck’s black-box data, and consultations with an accident reconstructionist – to build a strong case on your behalf.

Who Can Be Held Liable?

In a truck accident case, it is not just the driver who could be at fault. In fact, many of the truck accident cases our lawyers in Los Angeles pursue are not directed at the driver himself.

We may also be able to pursue a case against other parties, such as:

  • The trucking company
  • The truck driver’s employer
  • The vehicle manufacturer
  • The truck’s primary mechanic
  • Government entities

Truck Accident Liability Examples

  • Negligent or reckless driving: If the truck driver was driving in a reckless or negligent manner, such as speeding or texting while driving, they may be found at fault for the accident.
  • Vehicle maintenance: If the trucking company failed to properly maintain the vehicle, resulting in a mechanical failure that caused the accident, liability may fall on the company.
  • Improper loading: In some cases, the party responsible for loading the truck is liable for not properly securing or balancing the load.
  • Road conditions: If the accident was caused by poor road conditions, the government agency responsible for maintaining the road could be liable for the accident and any related injuries.

Get the Compensation You Deserve

After suffering personal injury in a truck accident, you are probably facing mounting medical bills, lost wages, severe pain, and mental anguish. You deserve compensation to cover these injustices and to help you move on from this incident. With Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP by your side, you stand a better chance of recovering the maximum compensation possible. Our truck crash lawyers in Los Angeles are not afraid to go up against the trucking company or the insurance company to help you achieve a positive resolution.

Truck Collision Statute of Limitations

Truck accident victims have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit. This is called the “statute of limitations.” In California, the statute of limitations for truck accident claims is two years from the date of the accident. This means that truck accident victims have two years to file a lawsuit against the truck driver, company, or other parties responsible for the accident.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident, it is important to consult with an experienced Los Angeles attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your claim is filed within the applicable statute of limitations.

How Much is Your Truck Accident Worth?

Truck accident cases vary widely in terms of their value. Factors that can affect the value of a truck accident case include the severity of the injuries suffered, the amount of medical bills and other damages incurred, the liability of the truck driver and trucking company, and the jurisdiction in which the case is filed.

In general, however, truck accident cases are worth more than car accident cases because truckers are held to a higher standard of care than regular drivers. That said, the actual value of your individual case is dependent on many factors and the best way to understand your legal options is to speak with an attorney.
