California Truck Accident Lawyer
One of the most substantial accidents that can occur involves trucks, semis or 18 wheelers. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles often leads to debilitating injuries for passengers in other vehicles. California has one of the busiest trucking industries in the entire country. Hundreds of imports, produce and manufactured goods are sent out in 18 wheelers by the minute from our busy ports and manufacturing areas.
When a severe truck or semi accident happens, the California truck accident lawyer you choose can make all the difference in the amount of the settlement or verdict. Humphrey & Rist has successfully handled a number of semi accident cases through verdict or settlement. In many of these cases our offices helped truck accident victims with severe and debilitating personal injuries including spinal cord injuries and paralysis. In the worst truck accidents, we worked with family members of someone who was killed in an accident to recover damages against the negligent truck driver.
Experienced California Truck Accident Attorneys
In any serious truck accident case, the experts that are hired by an attorney to examine what happened, and in some cases to reconstruct the accident itself if liability was contested can make all of the difference. Our office typically likes to quickly involve expert witnesses in a serious accident or fatality case. Accident reconstruction experts, life care planners, vocational experts, and trucking and transportation experts can help to piece together an entire story which becomes the foundation for a large settlement or award at trial.
