Our legal team works with clients to file claims against both drivers and transportation companies, depending upon the circumstances of the trucking accident.
If you’ve suffered an injury from being hit by a truck or been involved in a truck or semi-truck accident, Negrete Law Firm is here to help you move forward with a claim against the driver or company at fault. We’ll help you navigate the scope of your case and decide on a course of action that makes sense for your unique circumstances. Since no two cases are exactly alike, we take a focused approach and base our strategy on your specific situation.
Our firm handles cases against all types of large trucks and semi-trailers. Due to the size of the vehicles involved, these accidents are sometimes more complicated than a car or motorcycle accident.
Factors Involved in a Trucking Accident
If you have been involved in a trucking accident, there are many factors that need to be evaluated, including driver impairment, whether the driver is an independent contractor or works for a trucking company, and other related information. Our firm will investigate the details of the accident and prepare a case against the individual or company that is responsible for your injury.
Unlike car or motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents often have special circumstances that influence the direction and span of the case. This includes a legal concept known as respondeat superior, which refers to the idea that sometimes a company has liability for the actions of their employees. Our firm will review the facts of your specific case and establish whether the legal proceedings will be directed at the driver or the company itself.
Our expert legal team will also examine any issued tickets for traffic violations and the driver’s physical condition as reported by law enforcement officers who were present at the scene of the accident. If factors such as distracted driving, alcohol use, or drug use are established, we’ll make sure those details are included in the case we prepare on your behalf. We closely examine any and all circumstances and factors that may help you receive proper compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
