ACCIDENTS

Trusted Truck Accident Attorneys Putting Your Best Interest at the Forefront

In California and other areas across the country, accidents involving large trucks are on the rise. These commercial trucks include 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, big rigs, and construction trucks. In 2018, nearly 5,000 people in the United States lost their lives to crashes involving large trucks, and an estimated 151,000 people were injured. That same year, a total of 531,000 police-reported traffic accidents involved large trucks.

California has the second-largest incidences of fatal accidents involving large trucks, with most crashes occurring in Los Angeles County.

One of the leading causes of accidents involving trucks is negligence, which can take many forms. A driver speeding down the highway, improperly secured cargo, a poorly maintained truck, or an all-night truck run that turns deadly after a truck driver falls asleep at the wheel all can have life-altering consequences. And you’re left to pick up the pieces.

But you don’t have to go it alone.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of a truck accident, our Southern California truck accident attorneys are ready to assist you with your case. Our experienced attorneys will help you secure the medical treatment and compensation you need to put the pieces of your life back together.

      How a Southern California Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help You Win Your Case

      • Help you afford your medical bills—Due to a truck’s size and weight, the impact is far more severe. The injuries sustained may require extensive medical treatment or surgery, which means lengthy hospital stays and a loss of income from your inability to work, not to mention high healthcare costs. OPO has an expansive network of doctors and medical professionals who can provide you with treatment at no upfront costs. We will also negotiate hospital bills to lower your medical expenses if needed.
      • Negotiate with insurance providers and other parties—Truck accidents pose unique challenges for accident victims. In addition to the truck driver, you also have to deal with the trucking company, leasing company, contractors, and insurance companies, which can be an overwhelming process when trying to recover. The truck accident attorneys at OPO will handle all aspects of negotiating on your behalf by communicating with insurance companies and all other parties involved.
      • Conduct a thorough investigation of your case so all responsible parties are held accountable—Rarely in a truck accident case is just one party responsible. Using our extensive resources, OPO will investigate your claim. This process includes obtaining police reports, interviewing witnesses, and requesting medical records along with any additional documents to support your claim.
      • Manage the legal details of your case—The trauma of a truck accident can be both physically and emotionally exhausting. With a successful history of handling truck accident cases, our skilled attorneys will handle all aspects of your case, keeping you informed as your case progresses.
