Schedule a Free Consultation with Our Experienced Legal Team

Commercial big rigs, such as semi-trucks and tractor trailers, are an important part of the U.S. economy, transporting goods and services throughout the country. Due to the massive size and weight of these enormous vehicles, drivers and companies alike must follow strict safety regulations to avoid collisions involving passenger cars. Unfortunately, these devastating accidents occur quite frequently, resulting in more serious and fatal injuries compared to crashes between average-sized automobiles.

If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury caused by a collision with a big rig, our Bakersfield truck accident lawyers at Reed & Garcia Law, P.C. understand what it takes to help you obtain your entitled compensation. We can guide you through the complexities of these types of cases and protect your rights and best interests throughout the process in order to help you make the best physical and financial recovery possible from injury.

Who is Liable for the Trucking Accident?

Big rig accident cases are often more complicated compared to car accidents. Not only can the truck driver be held responsible for the crash, but also can the trucking company itself. For example, the trucking company was aware that the drunk driver responsible for the accident had a record of drunk or negligent driving or encourages their employees to work longer hours to make a profit and protect their bottom line. Additionally, truck manufacturers can also be held liable for defective vehicle parts.

Common examples of truck driver or trucking company negligence include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Fatigued driving
  • Truck driver error or inattention
  • Ignoring required truck inspection and maintenance
  • Improperly loading or securing truck cargo
  • Hiring inexperienced or unqualified drivers
  • Logging in hours beyond the required limit
  • Defective truck parts

Injuries as a result of big rig accidents are often catastrophic and life-altering in nature, which means victims must obtain the maximum amount in their settlements to either make a full recovery or receive continuing medical care for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, trucking companies are backed by powerful legal teams to determine any possible reason to deny or reduce claims for compensation, which is why it is important to hire experienced legal representation.
