Truck Accident Attorneys in Sacramento
Trusted & Experienced 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers
Truck accidents are different from all other types of motor vehicle accidents for many reasons. The primary reason is that semi-trucks are so much larger than any other type of vehicle on the road which can lead to catastrophic injuries for motorists unfortunate enough to get in an accident with an 18-wheeler. A Sacramento truck accident lawyer will be vital to your case as the litigation in these proceedings can be extremely complex, and the opposition will have powerful representation to protect their assets.
Truck accidents also involve complex matters of state and federal law. In addition to the regulations set by the California Department of Transportation, trucking companies and truck drivers are subject to federal rules and regulations. These regulations impact all aspects of the trucking industry, from the size and weight of a semi- truck to the maintenance and preservation of records.
How They Happen and Who is Responsible
Litigation in a truck crash is typically more complex than other motor vehicle accidents. The responsible party may be the driver, the company that owns the tractor, a separate company that owns or leases the trailer, or some combination of the above. Since multiple defendants may be involved, determining which ones are responsible for the damages and injuries requires skillful representation by your lawyer.
There are many reasons truck accidents occur. In Central California, including Interstate 5, bad weather and fog often play a role. As trucks travel along Highway 50 and Interstate 80 in the Sierra, they can be involved in accidents involving snow or ice. Overloaded trucks, tire blowouts, or other equipment failure can also lead to a truck accident.
