Sacramento Truck Accident Attorneys

Pursue Compensation with Del Rio & Caraway, P.C.

Truck accidents are a leading cause of injury and fatalities in the U.S., with an average of hundreds of thousands of trucks involved in accidents per year. Due to their large weight and size, truck accidents can be disastrous. Passenger vehicles, motorcycles, and other small vehicles offer little protection against the sheer mass of an 18-wheeler or other large truck.

We can help you navigate the complex litigation surrounding your case. At Del Rio & Caraway, P.C. we are passionate about upholding our clients’ rights and truly taking the time to understand their situation.

You are the priority at our firm. Get started by contacting us today at (916) 229-6755. We offer free case evaluations and can be reached at any time, 24/7.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

The largest factor in obtaining compensation for a truck accident case lies in the cause of the accident to begin with. Because many parties are often involved in a truck accident, it takes a firm with skilled investigators to get to the bottom of the situation.

Truck accidents are commonly caused by the following:

The trucking industry is heavily regulated by the government; however, trucking companies often pressure drivers to meet high quotas with strict deadlines. Depending on the facts of the case, you could pursue compensation from the driver, the trucking company, or both. From the moment we accept your case, our skilled truck accident attorneys in Sacramento will meticulously investigate your case and fight for an outcome that meets the needs of your circumstances.

What You Should Know About Commercial Policies

We encourage you to call us right away if you have been involved in a trucking accident, commercial or otherwise. While these should not stop you from taking action against the party (or parties) responsible for your injuries, there are a few things you should know when you are in an accident involving a commercial vehicle:

  • Your suit may not be against the driver. If the truck driver who hit you was on the clock at the time of the accident, your personal injury suit may need to be filed against the company. Legal battles against corporations tend to be more difficult and can take longer, but they are absolutely winnable and worth the time and effort they require.
  • Responsibility may be split. The person or parties accountable for your accident may vary and proportionate fault may be assigned in a number of different places. For example, the driver may have been tired and overworked, in which case their employer may be responsible for breaking federal labor laws or mistreating their employees. However, the accident may have also been partially caused due a mechanical failure resulting from faulty design or manufacturing error, in which case the manufacturer may also be partially responsible.
  • Prompt investigation is key: Because there is so much at stake for a truck driver’s employer, the driver, and the manufacturer, they are motivated to protect their own best interests. Evidence has been known to disappear or be tampered with, so it is wise to contact an attorney right away to make sure no critical information is lost.

At Del Rio & Caraway, P.C., we believe in protecting you to the best of our ability. Our law firm is built around the belief that people who suffer due to the error or recklessness of another person cannot truly recover unless there is justice. That’s why we serve people who have been harmed by negligent truck drivers, trucking companies, and truck manufacturers.
