Pasadena Truck Accident Attorney

Truck Accidents Cause Serious Injuries

Due to the extremely large size and weight of big rigs, an accident involving a big rig truck and a car often results in serious injury or wrongful death. The same is true for accidents between a motorcycle or a bicycle and a semi. Large trucks easily weigh over 10,000 pounds, with tractor-trailers and 18 wheelers tipping the scales at about 80,000 pounds or more.

When you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries or wrongful death in a truck accident, you should have the best Pasadena personal injury lawyer on your side. Injuries resulting from trucking accidents can include spinal cord injuries, paralysis, brain damage, burns, and multiple fractures. Because of the seriousness of truck accident injuries, the potential value of these claims is high. With so much money at stake, trucking companies will spend an enormous amount of money to fight and defend these cases. Truck accident cases tend to require more detailed investigative techniques than car accidents. To build a solid case and establish fault on the truck driver, the plaintiff's lawyer often has to bring in a trucking expert. It is very important that you work with a Pasadena personal injury lawyer who knows the best trucking experts to bring in and who has a war chest to go to battle with the trucking company. McGee, Lerer & Associates is a husband and wife team of accident attorneys who have 38 years of combined expertise helping truck accident victims recover just and fair compensation for their injuries and for the wrongful death of a loved one.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

A trucker has the obligation to drive safely and follow the rules of the road. When drivers fail in that regard and are found to be negligent, you may be entitled to damages for your injuries.

Some of the top causes of these truck accidents include:

  • Alcohol and drug use
  • Reckless and aggressive driving
  • Speeding
  • Design flaws or manufacturing defects
  • Lack of truck maintenance and inspection
  • Hiring inexperienced drivers
  • Poorly trained drivers
  • Employer negligence
