Truck Accident Attorneys San Diego

Our San Diego Accident Lawyers Handle Challenging Truck Crash Cases

Helping clients recover damages for catastrophic injuries

Accidents involving 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, dump trucks, box trucks, delivery vans and other types of commercial vehicles tend to be serious because of the weight and size of the truck, especially when compared to smaller, lighter cars.

Sidiropoulos Law Firm, APC has focused solely on serious injury cases since 1996. At our law firm, you are not a number, but an important individual. Our vehicle accident lawyers take the time to listen to your concerns and provide the support and guidance you need during the difficult time following your truck crash. We hold the negligent drivers and companies accountable for your injuries.

Liability of drivers

Operating a commercial vehicle requires alertness and skill. One mistake can result in a devastating wreck. Yet, drivers put your life in jeopardy when they act negligently. This is true when a person drives while:

Distracted

Using a cell phone

Texting

Impaired by alcohol

Under the influence of illicit drugs

Affected by prescription and over-the-counter medications

Fatigued and tired

Unfamiliar with the roadways

Speeding or driving recklessly

Laws regulating drivers

Because of the substantial responsibilities of driving a large truck, federal laws strictly regulate:

Hours of operation and rests — Truck and bus drivers are restricted on the number of hours they can drive in each shift and are required to take rest breaks and time off.

Mobile phone use — Commercial drivers are not permitted to reach for, dial, talk on or otherwise use the phone while operating the vehicle.

Texting — Drivers are not allowed to type, read or transmit texts while driving.

Drinking alcohol — Operating a truck or bus with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.04 percent or higher can result in DUI charges and commercial license suspension.

Accountability of trucking companies

Even if the driver is found at fault, the trucking corporation is likely also liable for the accident. Employers are liable for the actions of their workers who are performing their job duties. In addition, the supervisors may also be pressuring workers to speed, take stimulants, use cellphones or skip mandatory rest periods to deliver their loads by deadline. Poor maintenance of the fleets can lead to tire blowouts or brake failure. Unevenly distributed loads can cause jackknifing if the goods shift.

Compensation to drivers who have been injured in auto accidents

If you were injured while driving a commercial truck, you may have rights to benefits through the workers’ compensation program. You may also have a valid claim for payments from the other motorist’s auto insurance company.
