Why do you need a specialized trucking accident lawyer?
When there is a collision of two heavy vehicles, passengers and drivers often are seriously injured. The contact between the two vehicles creates an incident that under the laws of the state of California, can receive money from the responsible party. The money (called compensation) that can be received for the injury is paid all at once. The money should cover:
- Past medical expenses
- Future medical expense
- Past wage loss
- Future wage loss
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of ability to do household and other types of chores
- Loss of consortium (loss of ability for love, companionship, and other types of caring – this only applies if the injured person was married)

Common Case Types:
A case can be brought against the responsible party if someone was killed in the accident, or the resulting complications from the accident.
A diagnosed head injury that results from a trucking accident is an extremely common event. Due to the size and forces involved with semi-trucks, it is rare that an accident occurs where one of the passengers or drivers does not wind up with a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injuries are serious and possibly life altering injuries.
Any type of chronic pain that occurs on a regular basis resulting from a trucking accident and interferes with your ability to work is considered a large case.
