Oakland Truck Accident Attorney
Being involved in an accident with a large truck is dangerous. The sheer size and weight of an 18-wheeler, semi truck or big rig will place the driver and passenger of a smaller vehicle at immediate risk of injury. The potential severity of an Oakland truck accident makes it all the more important to consult an attorney if you or someone you know was injured in a collision of this kind.
Representing Victims in Oakland Truck Accidents
A person who has been involved in a truck accident and was injured has the right to seek justice by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person or party that caused the accident. For example, a truck driver may have been overworked and extremely tired, meaning that he or she was not watching the road carefully and was speeding to make his or her next stop on time. If that truck driver therefore caused an auto accident and injured the driver of a car, the driver of the car may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the truck driver (or the trucking company) to seek financial compensation for injuries sustained.
Holding the negligent party responsible in this way helps the victim recover the money he or she needs for medical care and other expenses or losses caused by the trucking accident.
