Given their sheer size, speed and weight, trucks and tractor-trailers pose far greater risks for people on the road than cars and passenger vehicles. It is common for truck accident victims to suffer serious brain injuries, paralysis and permanent disabilities. These injuries have life-altering consequences and will require extensive medical treatment.
If you or a family member has been involved in a truck accident, you have the right to be compensated for medical treatment, missing work, pain and suffering, and other expenses relating to the accident. At the Boesch Law Group, our Los Angeles truck accident lawyers have extensive experience helping truck accident victims just like you. We have obtained millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts in truck personal injury and wrongful death cases.
Working Hard to Maximize Your Compensation
Many trucking and shipping companies, commercial vehicle owners and truck maintenance companies carry large insurance policies. In other cases, self-insured truck drivers do not have sufficient coverage to fully pay for accident victims’ medical bills and other expenses.
In either case, you need an attorney who will work hard to determine the causes of your truck accident and help you maximize the compensation you receive in your personal injury or wrongful death claim. We will thoroughly examine log books, accident reports and other relevant evidence, as well as fully assessing your injuries and the consequences of the accident.
