Driving large commercial trucks on the roadway can be a bit terrifying, and rightfully so.

The size and weight discrepancy between large commercial trucks and traditional passenger vehicles mean that any collision between the two is likely to result in significant injuries for those involved. Data available from the National Safety Council, show there were approximately 118,000 total large trucks involved in injury crashes across the country during the latest reporting year and More than 5,000 large trucks were involved in fatal collisions during the same year.
The commercial truck accident lawyers at Mancini & Associates regularly help clients in these situations who have sustained the following types of injuries:
In addition to the physical injuries, truck crash victims in Southern California regularly suffer from significant emotional and psychological trauma as a result of the incident. Our personal injury attorneys strive to make sure that our clients receive proper medical treatment and to recover compensation for all of our clients’ injuries, including the visibly traumatic ones as well as the hidden psychological and emotional trauma they suffer from.
There may be various parties who can be held liable in the aftermath of a truck crash that causes injuries. If the careless or negligent actions of a truck driver are responsible for the collision, it is very likely that the driver’s employer will be held vicariously liable for the driver’s actions. If the driver was operating within the scope of their duties at the time the collision occurs, their employer and the employer’s insurance carrier will typically be responsible for paying out compensation to the injury victim. Other times, a faulty tire or other vehicle component may be to blame, leading to a product liability claim against the appropriate manufacturer and/or distributor.
