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

Experienced Northern California Trucking Accident Lawyers

In the aftermath of a serious commercial vehicle accident, it is essential to consider all possible causes and factors. One common cause of semi rollovers, jackknife accidents and other crashes involving over-the-road trucks is a driver being too tired to operate the vehicle safely.

At the Rooney Law Firm in Chico, California, we move quickly to investigate injury-causing and fatal truck accidents, aided by top-quality experts in accident reconstruction and other relevant areas. Applying decades of experience in high-stakes negotiations and litigation, our lawyers do everything possible to expose truck driver or trucking company negligence and obtain maximum compensation for our valued clients.

Exposing Truck Driver Fatigue and Countering Efforts to Conceal It

Despite federal and state laws limiting truck drivers’ hours on the road and mandating rest breaks, trucking companies often cut corners and put others’ lives at risk in the name of profit. When a trucking accident occurs, they may alter log books and falsify other records to conceal serious regulatory violations.

Our seasoned lawyers and investigators are familiar with these tactics and with various signs that driver exhaustion or distraction may have factored into your crash, such as:

  • Skid marks and other physical evidence indicating that the trucker failed to brake in time to avoid a collision
  • Your own or other witnesses’ observations of lane drifting or other erratic driving behavior prior to the accident

We know how to follow up on evidence we recover and have methods for tracking drivers’ road time regardless of what appears in their own records. In addition, our extensive experience withcatastrophic injury cases is a tremendous asset as we construct a compelling, accurate presentation on the total impact and costs of your life-changing accident.
