Pasadena Truck Accident Attorney

Fight for Your Right to Compensation

Truck drivers are held to high standards of safety, as the vehicles they operate have the potential for extremely harmful and even deadly consequences. If you were struck by an 18-wheeler and suffered an injury, you will likely be facing a long, expensive road to recovery. At Goldberg & Gille in Pasadena, California, we believe that negligent truck drivers should be held accountable for any damages they cause.

Our personal injury lawyers have more than 80 years of combined legal experience. We are proud to use a hands-on approach when handling personal injury claims and are committed to being available for our clients every step of the way. Injuries caused by truck accidents can be stressful, painful, and costly, and we can help ensure that you receive the financial support that you need to move forward.

The Dangers of Big Rigs

While there are many dangers on the road for every vehicle, trucks pose unique risks and require enhanced and unwavering attention. Even routine maneuvers for automobiles can be dangerous when performed by a truck driver, and the slightest mistake or the briefest moment of distraction can be deadly.

Some of the most common types of truck accidents include:

  • Underride accidents
  • Jackknifing
  • Turning
  • Rear ending

Due to the size, weight, and force of a truck, any one of these accidents can result in catastrophic injury, or even death. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, you have the right to pursue damages to cover medical bills, loss of wages, rehabilitation, emotional suffering and funeral costs.

Proving Liability in a Truck Accident

You can bring personal injury claims for any accident based on the concept of negligence, whereby one party had a responsibility to take reasonable measures to avoid endangering others and failed to do so. This applies to truck accidents when a truck driver's negligence directly resulted in your injury. However, a truck driver's responsibilities are enhanced even further by state and federal regulations.

Under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, a truck driver has strict and detailed limitations on hours of operations, height and weight requirements, and vehicle maintenance. Our personal injury attorneys are highly analytical and thorough in investigating accidents, and know what signs to look for that indicate that a truck driver was in violation of trucking regulations. Thus, we can potentially pursue damages from not only the driver, but from his or her employer as well.

Furthermore, we will employ use of a truck's "black box" in order to analyze the data that was recorded prior to an accident. This evidence can serve to prove that a truck driver was speeding or had been on the road for too long. An 18-wheeler is a large, heavy vehicle that can cause severe damage in an accident. Truck drivers should understand this and take all precautions to ensure they are not endangering others.
