California Truck Accident Attorney-
Injury Lawyer

California is one of the most dangerous states in the nation for accidents involving semi trucks trailing only Texas in these deadly scenarios. Its no wonder with over two million trucks in operation on our congested roadways statewide, nearly 5% of all motor vehicle accidents involve a large truck. Of those accidents, nearly 10% lead to fatalities. Victims fortunate enough to survive an accident with a semi truck, typically suffer multiple injuries such as brain trauma, spinal injuries,

broken bones or other soft tissue damage that can be life altering. If you’ve survived an accident with a big rig, you need a Big League lawyer that can hit back and aggressively pursue the maximum compensation for your injuries as you recover.

Common Causes of Semi Truck Accidents

While California requires a higher level of training and experience from operators of commercial vehicles on its roadways, the vast majority of collisions involving semi trucks still result from driver error. When big rigs are the cause of an accident, these are some of the most common reasons:


  • Tire blowouts

  • Accidents involving wide turns

  • Overloaded trucks

  • Accidents caused by spilled cargo

  • Truck rollover accidents

  • Accidents caused by truck driver fatigue

  • Inadequate driver training

  • Imbalanced loads

  • Large blind spot accidents

  • Speeding

  • Distracted driving

Who is Liable in a Semi Truck Accident?

Every semi truck or commercial truck accident is unique and liability can be a complex issue involving many factors. California is a pure comparative fault state meaning victims of an accident can recover damages for their injuries even if they are partly responsible for causing it. Accidents with semi trucks often involve multiple parties and assigning fault often requires analysis by a truck accident lawyer that can obtain the necessary facts and evidence to make a case of assigning fault. Aside from determining who may be at fault for the accident, liability for the damages may be obtained from the following:


  • The company the driver works for

  • The actual owner of the truck

  • A mechanic that previously worked on the truck

  • The truck manufacturer

  • A truck part manufacturer

  • The company that loaded the truck

  • Officials at a weigh station

  • The truck driver
