Protecting your rights following a truck accident
At some point, all motorists share the road with large commercial trucks. When traveling next to a semi-truck or a tractor-trailer truck, the massive size of these vehicles is clear. Although automobiles can maneuver, speed up and stop much better than these trucks, smaller motor vehicles are no match to these trucks when they collide. A truck accident is often the source of severe damages, serious injuries and even death.
A person's life can drastically change when they are involved in a truck crash. The pain and suffering that follows is often tremendous, and a victim will likely require much medical attention to address his or her injuries. At Peach & Weathers, a Law Corporation, our skilled attorneys have many years of experience helping victims of truck accidents. We understand how damaging these collisions can be. Therefore, we are dedicated to helping individuals in the Riverside area take action by assisting them with a civil claim.
Our law firm understands how negligence can be the cause of a truck crash. A truck driver might travel more hours than they are allowed by federal regulations, a truck driver might be fatigued, a truck may not be maintained and a trucking company might be implementing incentives to push the truck driver to travel further and longer to make shipments ahead of schedule. By gathering necessary evidence and documentation, our law firm is able to establish cause and liability.
Holding a negligent party liable not only ensures they are accountable for the crash. A personal injury action helps a victim recover losses and damages suffered. This includes pain and suffering, medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages and other similar damages.
