Los Angeles County Truck Accident Attorney

Legal help for trucking accidents

When a car, SUV, or other passenger vehicle collides with a large truck, serious injuries and fatalities occur frequently. In California, 5,814 vehicles were involved in fatal truck crashes in 2005, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission — the most in the nation.

If you have been injured or if a loved one was killed in a trucking accident, please contact the Law Offices of George A. Gallegos in either Monterey Park or Downtown Los Angeles, California, today. We file personal injury lawsuits to on behalf of trucking accident victims, to help them receive the money they deserve to compensate them for medical care and related expenses, lost income, emotional / mental anguish, property damage, and, in some cases punitive damages.

Our experienced attorneys will thoroughly investigate the accident. We will document the accident scene, interview witnesses, and study the police report and driver's log book. We may hire an accident reconstructionist to determine what caused the crash and who was responsible.

A number different parties may be held liable for damages caused by semi truck accidents, including the driver, the trucking company, the owner of the 18 wheeler's tractor, the owner of the trailer, the owner of the cargo, those who performed improper maintenance, and those who loaded the truck.

Trucking accidents can be caused by:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Unlicensed or improperly trained drivers
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Improper loading
  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • DUI / DWI
