Trucking Accidents

Trucks travel hundreds of thousands of miles on California highways. The U.S. Route 101 is a major route between the Bay Area and Southern California. Trucks are also dangerous on the highway. The average semitruck is 80,000 pounds.

Even a large SUV or pickup truck is unlikely to top 8,000 pounds, and many passenger cars are under 4,000 pounds and fully loaded. They carry cargo that can shift, fall out of the trailer, or maybe flammable, like gasoline or propane.

Experienced Truck Accident Lawyer

Our attorney at Therese Harris Law Offices can help you when you have suffered a trucking crash injury. You want your own attorney as soon as possible, because many of these large trucking companies have teams of investigators and lawyers who work to protect the companies. We look out for your rights and best interests while we work to obtain the compensation you need.

A Great Many Things Can Go Wrong With A Truck

A large truck can be dangerous for many reasons. Their drivers may be exhausted and fatigued, speeding to meet a deadline. They may be poorly trained or inexperienced, driving in bad weather, or driving on unfamiliar roads. They may be texting, on drugs or distracted.

The trucks can suffer from maintenance issues. If a truck is sitting idle, it's not making money, so most trucking companies attempt to maximize usage, even if it means neglecting maintenance issues or necessary repairs. Their brakes may be weak or they may have aging or balding tires.

Tire Failures Are All Too Common

Most motorists have seen shredded tire tread laying along side the road. Ever wonder how it got there? Truck tires blow out. Regularly. Imagine a truck is passing and one of its tires blows out and throws its tread at 60 mph just as it is alongside your vehicle. Such a blowout could cause the truck, and you, to lose control and crash.

These kinds of driver, training and maintenance issues are negligence, but you need to prove that negligence. We can help you with your case and help you obtain the compensation you need to recover.
