Trucking Company Negligence

SFV Truck Accident Attorney - (818) 783-8446

Have you been injured due to a truck company's negligence? Unfortunately, trucking companies focus on maximizing the amount of cargo that they haul around, and they work their employees around the clock. That is how they make their money. So many times trucking companies will cut corners and compromise on safety for a profit. There are many ways that trucking companies violate safety codes. Although the government holds strict trucking regulations, they do not check to see if trucking companies are abiding by those restrictions frequently enough. That is why truck company negligence is often a problem, not only for the truck drivers themselves, but for all the other drivers on the road.

I have been able to recover over $65 million in verdicts and settlements for the injured.

Here at The Law Offices of Joel Parker, I believe that trucking companies that sacrifice the health and safety of the public should not go unpunished. My firm strives to hold these irresponsible truck companies liable for their negligent and reckless acts. These companies are often too focused on making a profit and many ignore the risk and consequences of their actions. Truck accidents can cause catastrophic and even fatal injuries and they can easily change someone's life forever. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident as the result of a trucking company's negligence, I will help you seek justice and fair compensation.

Examples of Truck Company Negligence

My firm has handled a wide variety of truck accident cases and the majority of them are caused by some form of negligence or recklessness on behalf of the trucking company. The more common cases of truck company negligence include:

  • Overloading the truck with cargo
  • Loading the cargo improperly on the truck
  • Allowing drivers to drive long hours, cut corners and skip rest stops
  • Failing to properly train the truck drivers
  • Failing to do regular maintenance on the trucks
  • Hiring a driver with a history of traffic tickets
  • Encouraging drivers to drive with little to no sleep
  • Violating safety regulations by doing drugs or drinking alcohol

What makes matters worse is that not only do trucking companies act negligently at times, they also have aggressive attorneys to shift the blame off of them. This way they don't have to take responsibility for their actions. That is why you need a talented litigation attorney to present your case to the insurance companies. While trucking companies are looking after their own best interests, I will be protecting yours. My firm is well-versed in accident reconstruction and I can conduct a thorough investigation into the events leading up to the accident. I will work tirelessly to show that truck company negligence was the direct cause of your accident.
