Because of their size and weight, commercial trucks are a veritable force to be reckoned with on California roadways. Tractor-trailers, semis, big-rigs – no matter what you call them, these beasts of the road are easy to spot and sometimes difficult to avoid.
During a collision, commercial trucks can cause serious damage to smaller vehicles and their occupants. Often, the drivers and passengers in smaller vehicles are seriously injured or killed by the force of the truck.
If you have been injured in a truck accident or have lost a loved one in a truck accident, you should know that you are not alone. At Zarabi Law, our truck accident attorney is dedicated to helping truck accident victims. We can help you protect your rights, fight for justice from the owner and/or operator of the truck, and get the compensation you deserve.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents in California
Truck accidents can happen for many reasons. Some causes are due to other drivers or medical conditions, causing an emergency. Sadly, the majority of truck accidents are caused by preventable factors, such as:
- Truck driver fatigue
- Intoxication with alcohol or drugs
- Over-loaded trailers
- Reckless driving
- Inadequate truck maintenance
- Defective truck parts
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has strict regulations for truck drivers. Unfortunately, many drivers try to skirt the rules in order to maintain their schedules and maximize their profits. In the meantime, they are risking their lives and that of those on the road around them.
Why Contact a California Truck Accident Attorney
Truck accident claims can be very complicated. There is far more involved in these cases than traditional auto accidents. Often, truck accident cases involve multiple parties, such as:
- Truck driver
- Truck owner
- Insurance companies
- The company that hired the driver
- A manufacturer of truck parts
- Other drivers
Because so many parties may be involved, the process of proving your claims and getting the compensation you need can take longer and be more tedious.
That is why you need the legal guidance of a skilled truck accident attorney. At Zarabi Law, we offer that and more. Our team has the skills and resources you need to prove your claims, protect your rights, hold the other party accountable, and get the compensation you deserve.
