Do I Need a Lawyer for My Trucking Accident Claim?
If you want to recover financial compensation for damages resulting from a truck accident in California, you need to be represented by an attorney. Truck accident cases are much more complicated and difficult to litigate than car accident cases, which makes it virtually impossible for victims to successfully represent themselves, even when they have sustained injuries of an obvious and extreme nature. Every semi-truck is owned by a trucking company or a large corporation. These companies know the danger involved in operating massive vehicles, and they are prepared for litigation – without your best interests in mind.
Each trucking company that operates vehicles in the state of California has aggressive defense attorneys ready to fight any personal injury claims or wrongful death lawsuits that are filed against them. If you want to seek compensation from the trucking company or corporation that was responsible for your accident, you will need an efficient and innovative attorney on your side who can take on a powerful defense team. The Ventura 18-wheeler accident lawyers at The Law Offices of Bamieh & De Smeth, PLC know how to approach these challenging cases, because they have more than two decades of legal experience. At Bamieh & De Smeth, we are firmly committed to serving our community with high quality personal injury representation, no matter how complex or daunting an individual’s case may seem.
Injury Compensation for Truck Crash Victims
When it comes to commercial truck accidents in California, the driver isn’t necessarily the liable party, or party at fault. In fact, there may be several parties instead of or in addition to the driver that played roles in causing the accident. For example, the trucking company, other employees at the trucking company, and/or manufacturing companies may be liable if the accident occurred due to an issue such as failure to inspect the vehicle, or using faulty, defective truck parts on a vehicle.
With our team of full-time investigators, the Ventura truck crash attorneys at The Law Offices of Bamieh & De Smeth, PLC can help you identify who to name in your lawsuit. Parties who may be held liable in Ventura or Santa Barbara truck accident cases include:
- The truck driver
- The truck driver’s employer
- The trucking company
- The truck or truck part manufacturer
- The loader of the truck’s cargo
- The company that the trucker was delivering goods for, such as a grocery store chain or manufacturer of consumer goods
Once we have determined which parties may be liable, we can pursue compensation for a variety of expenses and losses related to your accident, including:
- Your medical bills
- Your pain and suffering
- The income you have lost
- Effects on your future earning capacity
