Trucking Accident Lawyer in Sacramento
Recovering Compensation for Your Injuries
Due to the weight and size of commercial trucks, accidents involving these vehicles frequently cause serious or catastrophic injuries. The Carichoff Law Group represents clients with serious injuries sustained in an accident with a commercial truck. Our trucking accident attorney in Sacramento has more than 19 years of experience representing injured clients.
Negligence That Causes Trucking Accidents
When a passenger car collides with a semi-truck, big rig, or 18 wheeler, the difference in vehicle size and weight often results in severe damage to the other car and serious or catastrophic injuries to other drivers and passengers. Commercial truck drivers are required to follow strict scheduling regulations, which were implemented to reduce these accidents.
Some common causes of trucking accidents include:
- Driving while drowsy
- Failure to perform truck maintenance
- Trailers that are overloaded
- Reckless driving
When the driver is negligent or reckless, the injured person may seek compensation for damages. This includes compensation for medical bills, future medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other forms of economic and non-economical damage. Often, the trucking company or their insurance company may attempt to get you to accept a settlement offer. Be aware that these are often low ball offers that may not cover your future needs, so it is best to have an attorney to represent your interests.
