Truck Accident Attorney

If you or someone you love have been injured or lost a family member in an accident involving a truck, you may be entitled to significant compensation from the truck owner And/or driver. These substantial trucking companies have attorneys working hard at their side, making it more difficult to receive a fair settlement than in other types of accidents. Trucking companies carry large insurance policies, and those insurers appoint lawyers who fight hard to convince victims to accept small settlements. Make sure this does not happen to you! Mann Law Group’s experienced tractor-trailer accident attorneys will fight on your behalf to get you the settlement you are entitled to and deserve.

Typical Causes Of Truck Accidents

  • Jack-knifing accidents: This type of accident occurs when the trailer portion of a tractor-trailer begins to move independently of the tractor that is pulling it, and swings out to either side. Jack-knife accidents are often caused by improper braking technique, slippery road conditions, equipment failure, driving too fast for conditions, or taking a turn at an excessive speed.
  • Turning accidents: Because commercial trucks are considerably larger than passenger vehicles, to make a turn, they are often forced to occupy two lanes. This creates hazards for other vehicles nearby.
  • Runaway trailer accidents. When the tractor and trailer become detached, the trailer can continue traveling with no driver, endangering anyone in the area. Runaway trailer accidents are often caused by slippery road conditions, hitch failure, improperly attached trailers, and reckless driving.
  • Underride accidents. Underride accidents occur when a passenger vehicle goes under the trailer of a tractor-trailer. These accidents are dangerous because they can shear the top off of the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Federal law requires all trailers to have underride guards to prevent such accidents. However, tests have shown that many underride guards used in American trucking are not strong enough and collapse upon impact. Underride guards also often do no work as designed when a car crashes into the side of the trailer.

Truck Drivers Must Abide By Federal Trucking Regulations

There are particular federal regulations that all commercial truck drivers are required to observe.

Just a few of these federal trucking regulations include:

  • Truck drivers may not drive with a blood alcohol content of 0.04%
  • Commercial drivers may not drink alcohol up to four hours prior to driving
  • Truck drivers must be older than 21 and demonstrate an ability to drive safely
  • Truck drivers must inspect their vehicles’ loads at regular intervals
  • Truck drivers must exercise extreme caution or stop driving in dangerous weather
  • Truck drivers must take regular rest breaks at scheduled times
  • Trust drivers may not log more than a certain number of hours
  • Truck companies must schedule reasonable unloading times

Commonly weighing in the neighborhood 70,000 to 80,000 pounds when completely loaded, trucks may quickly become massive safety hazards as a result of even the slightest error. At Mann Law Group, we know what it takes to secure the maximum possible compensation, and will work with you to navigate every step of the legal process.

Some of the things that our firm can do after a truck accident include:

  • Interview witnesses about their recollection of the accident
  • Obtain the driver’s logs and trucking company records
  • Keep the truck from being repaired so that it can be inspected
  • Preserve the truck’s electronic on-board recorder data
  • Obtain a copy of the truck driver’s driving history
  • Inspect all maintenance and inspection records for the truck
  • Examine and document the scene of your truck accident

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a personal injury attorney services cost?

MANN Law Group accepts personal injury cases on a contingency basis, which means that you don’t pay unless your claim is successfully resolved. At that point, you would pay MANN Law Group a percentage of your total award or settlement. If you don’t win, you don’t pay!

Why do you I need a lawyer after a car accident?

For every personal injury accident (including car accidents) a claim must usually be filed. Filing claims can be a very tedious process and are often hard to navigate. MANN Law Group is here to help you with this process. Our team of experts has over 30 years of experience navigating this process successfully. While we deal with the claims process, you can focus on recovering from your injuries due to your accident. Our lawyers and legal staff fight on your behalf to obtain the maximum compensation that you deserve. Having an attorney after a personal injury accident can also help you obtain a much larger settlement than if you attempted to file, and attempted to settle, a claim on your own. Learn more about the process of filing a claim and how our attorney can help you today.

It is necessary to hire a personal injury lawyer?

The personal injury claim process is a minefield for the inexperienced. Insurance companies, at least in theory, are supposed to oversee the process in an equitable manner, but they consistently put their interests before those of accident victims. Hiring Avrek Law Firm ensures that your needs come first.

Can I still get a consultation if I already have an attorney?

Yes! You are always entitled to a free, no-obligation consultation or second opinion on your case. If you are not happy with the attorney that represents you, or feel that the offer received by your attorney from the insurance company is not enough, call us so we can properly evaluate your claim.

How long do I have to get an attorney after my accident?

Each type of case has a statute of limitations, which means you only have a certain amount of time to file a claim. In California, the statute of limitations is only 2 years for auto accident claims. But don’t wait to call! Other statutes can be much shorter, and you may not realize that you have a different type of claim that applies to your accident!
