California Truck Accidents Need a Truck Accident Attorney
Commercial truck drivers have more experience and training than the average driver on the road, and as a result most are very good and conscientious drivers. Still, even with training, there are a lot of truck accidents in the state, and California truck accidents are a major concern, and over the past decade, this state actually tops the list of most recorded truck accidents.
There are many reasons why accidents happen, but all too often speeding and misuse of substances play a strong role. Drugs or alcohol are involved in over half of the instances. About a quarter of the time the drivers are going too fast, and frequently excess fatigue is also listed as a main cause for the accident.
With all the wear and tear on large trucks, mechanical issues also contribute to truck accidents with tire problems being blamed as a top culprit.
Nearly 90% of the time, however, truck accidents can be prevented. When someone is driving a large truck, there is little to no margin for error. A semi-truck weighs 20 times more than the average car on the road, and visibility is also decreased by the size of the vehicle and the increased area of blind spots.

Working With California Truck Accident Law Firms
Attorney Darryl Isaacs — known popularly as “The Hammer” — and Isaacs and Isaacs’ will assemble a team of attorneys that take on a wide variety of accident and personal injury cases across the country. You need experience on your side regardless of what type of truck was involved. We will assemble a team of California truck accident lawyers to fight for your important case.
There is also a lot you can do to contribute to the success of your own case. It is important to be mindful of how the injuries you or your loved ones sustained are affecting your lives. Even at the scene of the accident, there are a number of things you can do in order to make your own case stronger, and ways a truck accident attorney can help.
Gather Evidence About the Accident, Including Photos
If you are at all able, you should record as much information about the accident as you can. That may mean snapping some photos of your vehicle, your injuries, other vehicles, marks on the road or whatever may seem relevant. Get information about the trucking company and the driver, make notes about their state of mind, or if there is any visible sign of impairment.
Get Witness Information
Witnessing a truck accident can be traumatic, even if you aren’t involved, and witnesses can’t always articulate everything they are seeing as it is happening. Often, they remember something important after the fact, and they might bring up important information during a later questioning. Getting some information right away is likely to be helpful, but getting their information so your truck accident lawyer can follow up later can be invaluable.
Seek Medical Attention
Any time you are in an accident, there is a chance of injury, even if you don’t feel it. Seeking medical attention from a professional will allow for any injuries sustained to be properly documented so that they can strengthen your case later. Your medical records will give insight to your future ability to work or work in the same capacity as you did before the accident as well as pain and suffering that might diminish your quality of life.
Don’t Underestimate Your Injuries
Truck accidents, especially those that involve large rigs can have a large range of injuries and involve many people. Some people in the accident might be severely injured or even killed while others might have less severe injuries. In an accident like that it is easy to downplay your injuries and back off while the critically injured are taken care of.
While gratitude is good, it is important to recognize that your injuries matter, and they deserve treatment and compensation for whatever level of suffering, expense, and inconvenience they cause. People at the scene, from witnesses to insurance adjusters, to the police will likely ask you if you are okay. The best answers to give are no or you don’t know. You might feel mostly fine immediately after an accident only to discover intense pain once the adrenaline wears off.
Get Access to the Police Report and Other Records
Since the police report is the first official record of the incident, it is a good starting point to revisit what happened in an accident and how people were affected. Experienced California truck accident lawyers know what to look for in these reports as well as other accounts of the incident.
Initiate Further Investigation
With so much chaos in the immediate aftermath of a truck accident, some details are sure to get overlooked. The California team of attorneys we assemble will initiate further investigation and look at factors that go beyond driver error, and look into the mechanical condition of the truck, training practices, and whether the trucking company allows for drivers to obtain the rest they need between shifts.
We work to get to the bottom of why an accident happened and hold the right people or company responsible. Compared to the average person, truck companies are as big as the rigs they put on the road. If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash, you need a California truck accident attorney with the skill and reputation to give you the best possible chance at financial recovery, regardless of your injuries.
