Truck Accident Lawyers in Orange County
Trucking companies and their insurers are aware of how badly an accident involving a tractor-trailer can injure you. That’s why they have damage assessment teams to defend them. While you were in transport to the hospital, their investigators were collecting evidence at the scene, interviewing witnesses, in an attempt to mitigate their liability for the accident.
You are at a significant disadvantage against the trucking industry. They will intimidate victims and deny legitimate claims, all in an effort to protect their bottom line. For this reason, we urge you to contact Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie’s experienced OC car accident attorneys at (949) 752-7474 right away. We’ll take over and go head-to-head with these powerful corporations, as we have for the last 40 years.
- Big rigs weigh 20 times as much as the average passenger vehicle – up to 80,000 pounds.
- Occupants of passenger vehicles suffer a majority of the injuries and deaths in crashes involving large trucks. Surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death claim for compensation.
- Nearly 40% of large truck accidents occur when the front of the truck collides with the passenger vehicle. That shouldn’t be a surprise, since it takes a semi nearly twice as long to stop.
- The LA Basin has a much higher ratio of trucks to passenger cars than most metropolitan areas, because of our harbors and refineries. This puts Southern California residents at an increased risk of a collision with a large truck.
