Unsafe loads and falling objects from trucks cause damages and injuries in California daily. Many types of objects, large and small, can cause serious accidents that have life-altering consequences for victims. At Winer, Burritt & Scott, LLP, we work hard to represent the best interests of accident victims and hold negligent parties accountable for injuries and deaths caused by unsafe trucking practices.
When a truck driver fails to safely load or secure cargo, it can fall from the truck or trailer at any moment. Overloaded truck and unsecured load accidents can also result from truck drivers losing control and rollovers when cargo shifts. In most cases, where negligence can be shown, the trucking company or other employer of the driver can be held accountable. However, if your injury was the result of falling cargo or road debris from a truck, finding the truck from which cargo fell and proving negligence can be very difficult when the truck driver does not stop or fails to notice that cargo fell onto the road.
You Need Experienced Legal Representation For Several Reasons
Speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer about your legal options is imperative. In some cases, your own insurance policy may cover some expenses, but your personal injury protection (PIP) insurance is not likely to cover the extensive losses and damages that result from a catastrophic injury. Our California accident attorneys thoroughly investigate the accident scenes of the cases that our law firm takes on. We collaborate with accident reconstructionists and industry experts to determine the cause of the crash and build strong cases.
In-depth knowledge of trucking regulations, traffic accident evidence and personal injury litigation are critical assets in your pursuit of injury compensation from an insurance company, whether it is the trucking company’s insurance or your own insurance that we must prosecute for your deserved compensation. Defense lawyers are trained to fight, and they have almost limitless resources. Our strategic experience, independent resources and litigation skills have proven time and again that we can handle difficult challenges.
We have recovered more than $200 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of injury victims throughout California.
