Big trucks usually result in big accidents. Los Angeles is a major roadway for trucks to drive thru, drop off and pick up shipments and much more. Not surprisingly, it is also the site of serious and sometimes deadly truck accidents. The sheer size and numerous reactionary limitations of a large truck are often too much for small cars and even smaller motorcycle riders to handle. If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one as a result of a Los Angeles truck accident, get in touch with Walch Law immediately.
Los Angeles Truck Accident Legal Questions
Questions abound following a major accident: will life ever be the same?; can I file a lawsuit?; how do I pick the best truck accident lawyer in Los Angeles?; will I be able to work again? At Walch Law, we get it and we are here to answer all of your questions and help get back life to normal again. Here's a look at some of our most common Los Angeles truck accident questions:
- I've been in a serious Los Angeles truck accident, who would I be suing? Unlike a lot of car or motorcycle accidents where you file a lawsuit against the insurance of the party that hit you (not always the only defendant, but often the case), when it's a truck accident there are often multiple much larger defendants at play. In most cases, you might name the following defendants: the truck driver and the truck driver's employer. The good news is that in naming the drivers' company, you have a much better chance at getting significantly more money in your case than you would if it were a car accident with low insurance policy limits.
- How much is my case worth? This probably should have been listed in the number one spot because this is such a common question and rightfully so-- you have been in a serious truck accident that was not your fault (or at least not completely) and you want to know what you can expect from a Los Angeles truck accident personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. We get it. Here's what goes into this answer (which is why you need to call us to talk more): scope of your injuries and future medical needs, damage to your car and any other personal property, how the accident happened, who the defendants are. Whether it is in Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Encino, Tarzana or Sherman Oaks, a Los Angeles Truck accident case with serious injuries is usually worth a substantial amount of money and something best left to Walch Law to handle in order to maximize your settlement and minimize the amount of time it takes to get these funds.
- Why are Los Angeles truck accidents so common? To be clear, Los Angeles car, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents are also very high as well. There are so many cars on the road trying to get from one place to another and that causes accidents. Because of their size, trucks are hard to share a road with when times are busy-- they have way more blind spots than a car, have a slow reaction time and often hit multiple cars in an accident.
- What if I caused part of the accident? Too many California drivers mistakenly assume that if they played a role in a car accident then they are barred from filing a lawsuit. That is not the case. Los Angeles and the rest of California operates on a legal theory of comparative negligence meaning that you are responsible for the portion of the accident you caused but can still collect money for the portion that is not your fault. Put differently, once it is determined what % of the truck accident you are responsible for, your financial settlement is reduced by that amount. So, if the case was worth $200,000 total but you are responsible for 50% of the accident (a number as your attorney we will fight to be as low as possible) then you can collect $100,000.
- How can an attorney help with my Los Angeles truck accident case? An attorney can help with your case in so many ways. Our goal at Walch Law is to maximize your financial recovery, minimize the intrusion a lawsuit has in your life and get your case done so you can move on as quickly as possible.
