Truck Accident Attorneys in Sacramento

Trusted & Experienced 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers

Truck collision with passenger vehicleTruck 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.

Who is Liable After a Truck Accident?

Determining liability in a truck accident isn’t as straightforward at determining liability in other motor vehicle accident cases since there are many possible liable parties. In some cases, more than one party can be held liable for a single accident. Among the possible liable parties, the three most common individuals or entities found responsible are the truck driver, the trucking company, and the truck manufacturer.

  • The Truck Driver
    A truck driver is often held responsible if their behavior or negligence led to the accident. In some cases, the driver is also held accountable if they own the truck that caused the accident.
  • The Trucking Company
    Most often the trucking company is found liable for an accident since they are often caught encouraging their drivers to break trucking rules and regulations in order to help save their company money.
  • The Truck Manufacturer
    If the accident was caused by a defective part or fix then the truck manufacturer may be held liable.

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • The lawyers actually care!

    “The lawyers actually care, helping my daughter recover the insurance policy limits for her injuries involving a drunk driver.”

    Chris S.

  • I am so grateful to have found them.

    “From my initial phone conversation with Mr. John C Miller, Jr., I knew that my family would be in great hands. Mr. Miller and his staff were very professional, knowledgeable and caring. I am so grateful to have found them. I live in OC and at first I was concerned about the distance, but, he made it work and was able to help me and my family. I would highly recommend Mr. John C. Miller, Jr. and his staff.”

    Mike

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”

    Former Client

  • I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly.

    “John Miller is a phenomenal attorney. Mr. Miller went above and beyond what most attorneys do. I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly. I unfortunately was involved in a serious car accident that left me with a lot of medical bills and a ton of stress. When John was assigned to my case he spend endless hours (of his own time) preparing for settlement and then trial. Mr. Miller is very articulate, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to his clients. I hope to never need a personal injury attorney ever again but if the circumstances ever presented themselves I would want John Miller by my side.”

  • They were there for me.
