Experienced Truck Accident Lawyers in Chico, California
Crashes involving semi trucks and other large commercial vehicles are physically devastating and often tragically fatal. They also present an array of challenges afterward involving insurance coverage and the recovery of financial compensation for victims and their families.
Trucking companies are intensely aware of all they have on the line if found negligent and liable for an injury-causing accident. Consequently, and sometimes in concert with their insurance companies, they may go to extreme measures to conceal evidence of unsafe and unlawful practices that put others at risk.
Thorough Accident Investigation to Expose Trucking Company Negligence
Getting a highly skilled, trial-proven attorney involved as soon as possible is especially critical after a serious big rig or other commercial vehicle accident. Working with experts in accident reconstruction, the trucking industry and other fields as needed, our team of attorneys will move quickly and work all angles in the effort to expose and prove trucking company negligence such as:
- Failure to perform timely, required vehicle inspections and essential maintenance to prevent tire, brake and steering failures, breakaway trailers and other potentially catastrophic events
- Negligent driver hiring and employment practices such as failing to perform background checks, monitor individual drivers' safety records and provide adequate training
- Overloading trucks in violation of federal or state laws
- Other regulatory violations such as encouraging or allowing truckers to exceed limits for hours on the road, which causes driver fatigue but is routinely concealed through falsification of log books or other records
