California Truck Accident Lawyers, Los Angeles Personal Injury Accident Attorneys
Accidents involving large trucks often cause very traumatic injuries or fatalities. Trucking companies, however, aggressively defend even the most obvious cases of negligence and attempt to place fault on the injured party. Our accident attorneys are experts at uncovering facts to prove when a trucking company is guilty of negligence to get you fair compensation for your injuries or losses.
Our Truck Accident Attorneys Know the Law and Trucking Industry Regulations
AlderLaw has found that most trucking companies cut corners on documentation and poorly train their drivers. Our accident attorneys also know that truck companies do not always follow their own rules and procedures which can be a significant contributing factor to truck accidents. For example, trucking companies often allow drivers to continue to drive after they have been disciplined for poor driving skills. Most of these companies attempt to hide their actions, assuming because they've gotten away with it in the past, they will continue to do so.
Knowing the details of proper truck driver training and procedure is critical to uncovering the truth about the trucking company and its driver because if a defendent is found guilty of negligence, the amount of damages you can recover may be more substantial - something a truck company's insurer does not want you to know.
AlderLaw has an extensive library of truck driver manuals and tests, training manuals and videos, and depositions of truck company managers from its past successful lawsuits against trucking companies. Using this wealth of information, AlderLaw is able to effectively cross-examine nearly any type of witness in a truck accident case.
