Collisions with Commercial Vehicles

If your accident involved a commercial vehicle, your attorney will approach your case differently than if your accident involved a personal car. This is because commercial vehicles are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The FMCSA sets standards for truck drivers and transit companies. Failure to observe these standards can be proof of negligence. Commercial vehicles involve those transporting goods or passengers and encompass: 

  • Semi-trucks 
  • Tractor-trailers 
  • Flatbed vehicles 
  • Tankers 
  • Utility vehicles 
  • Box trucks 
  • Cement mixers 
  • Livestock carriers 
  • Moving vans 
  • Garbage trucks 
  • Trucks transporting hazardous materials (hazmat) 
  • Dump trucks 
  • Passenger vehicles

Types of Truck Accident Cases We Handle

Numerous factors can cause a truck accident, from defective auto parts to poor road conditions. A personal injury lawyer will employ different strategies based on the unique circumstances of each case to build your claim for damages.   At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we will conduct a thorough investigation to identify the cause of the crash and will tailor our negotiation and litigation strategies accordingly. We represent victims in trucking-related accidents including the following:

  • Spilled cargo truck accidents 
  • Accidents caused by overloading a trailer 
  • Rollover accidents 
  • Tire blowout accidents 
  • Accidents caused by impaired or drowsy driving 
  • Blindspot truck accidents 
  • Truck accidents resulting in the wrongful death of a motorist

Identifying Liable Parties

Our lawyers are experienced in identifying the liable parties in truck accidents. In addition to the driver, our attorneys have successfully brought claims on behalf of our clients against several parties, including:

  • Trucking companies (for faulty vehicle or improper driver training);  
  • Truck maintenance companies (for failure to properly maintain the vehicle); 
  • Vehicle manufacturers (for manufacturing faulty parts); and 
  • Cargo loading parties (for improper loading of the cargo).

You may have grounds to file a claim against any or all of the above parties for your accident.  Our Victorville truck accident attorneys have the best resources available to investigate your accident and identify all potentially liable parties, allowing you to rest assured that all parties responsible for your accident will be held accountable.

Gathering Concrete Evidence

Even if you did not contribute to your accident, an insurance carrier might still dispute your claim. Strong evidence is vital to rebutting any pushback you may face.  Our truck accident lawyers will gather factual evidence by launching a thorough investigation. In many cases, we hire expert witnesses to testify in court as to what likely caused the accident and who was responsible. Our attorneys may also gather the following forms of evidence: 

  • The accident report 
  • Vehicle maintenance records 
  • Dashcam footage 
  • Photographs of the accident scene 
  • GPS data 
  • Eyewitness testimony 
  • Black box data 
  • The truck driver’s cell phone records
