If you or a loved one are injured in a truck accident, you have the right to claim compensation for your injuries. The negligent party must be held accountable. However, even though the trucking company and the driver are well insured, if they face it alone, they may receive less than a full and fair financial recovery.

Who can be held responsible for a truck accident?
Most truck accidents in Los Angeles are the responsibility of trucking companies. Truck companies are held accountable not only for their own actions, but also for the actions of heavy truck drivers.
It is the responsibility of all trucking companies to reasonably prevent accidents. Companies must do this through regular vehicle inspections, proper hiring and training procedures, and by complying with all federal truck safety regulations. If the company neglects this duty of care and causes a preventable accident, the company may be liable for damages.
