Monterey Truck Accident Attorney

Accidents involving commercial trucks and passenger buses or vans are some of the most devastating traffic incidents. Given the large size and weight of big-rigs, trucks pulling trailers and double trailers, agricultural vehicles, buses, and other similar large vehicles and their inability to stop or maneuver easily, accurately or quickly, catastrophic injuries are common and can be fatal. Trucks pose a serious threat to anyone who shares the city and country roads and highways with them on the Central Coast. You may be entitled to compensation if the truck driver or driver of any large vehicle, whether agricultural or passenger, is at fault.

Information for Injury Victims

Although the trucking industry is heavily regulated by the federal and state governments, commonly truck drivers, and their employers, violate these governmental regulations as well as the local traffic laws and cause injury accidents. Truck drivers are commonly tired from driving long hours, distracted by cell phones or radios, inattentive, lost in unknown areas, late for deliveries, have past histories of traffic violations, or are driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Unfortunately, these situations can cause horrendous multi- or single-vehicle accidents resulting in catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. As with any other car accident, those responsible should be held accountable for the damages their negligent conduct causes.

Governmental carriers, including buses or vans, or commercial vans or buses, which carry passengers are also regulated by special laws in addition to common traffic laws. This additional layer of laws was enacted to protect passengers who have paid for safe transportation. The carrier can be a governmental entity, such as a city or county bus, or a school bus, or it could be a private carrier that is transporting passengers on a tour or other travel event. Like trucking accidents, the likelihood of catastrophic injury and wrongful death is greater when there are accidents with these large buses or vans.

If you've been injured in a trucking accident, an agricultural vehicle accident, a bus accident or any other large vehicle accident you need immediate representation. Drivers of semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, buses, vans or other types of trucks or large vehicles are liable to pay compensation for any injuries they cause due to violations of special laws and regulations, common traffic laws, and any other negligent conduct. Trucking companies and large businesses and their insurance companies have large and experienced legal teams to defend themselves against any claims for injuries. Their insurance and legal teams are on the site of a trucking accident within hours. Getting immediate legal advice helps you to preserve the evidence of their negligent conduct and ensure the evidence is preserved to prove the other driver was at fault and entitle you to the compensation you deserve.
