Truck Accident Attorney in Fresno

California has the second-highest number of truck driver jobs in the United States, just after Texas, according to a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report. While this is actually good for the State’s economy, having so many trucks on our roads increases the risk of accidents. 

Right here in Fresno, we’ve witnessed so many accidents involving trucks and regular vehicles or even pedestrians. The saddest thing about it all is that some of these accidents happen because of someone else’s negligence, not bad luck. 

In such cases, an experienced Fresno truck accident lawyer from our team can step in and ensure that those involved in the accident are adequately compensated. If that’s what you’re looking for, please fill out our free case evaluation form today. An attorney from the nation’s largest injury firm might be able to fight for you.

  • What Are Some Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Fresno?

    Truck accidents happen due to many different factors. Here are some examples:

    • Speeding
    • Distracted driving
    • Fatigue
    • Inexperienced drivers
    • Mechanical failures
    • Driving under the influence
    • Reckless driving
    • Poor road conditions
    • Failure to obey traffic signals
    • Blind spots
    • Inadequate maintenance
    • Overloaded trucks
    • Failure to yield the right of way
    • Improper lane changes

    In situations where negligence is involved, the injured are allowed to file a claim for compensation for the injuries and damages they’ve sustained.

  • Who Can Be Liable for a Truck Accident in Fresno?

    Liability for such accidents may fall on the truck driver, trucking company, vehicle manufacturers, maintenance companies, or even other negligent drivers. That said, determining liability depends on the specific circumstances of the accident, which is why it is always advisable to have your case reviewed by a truck accident expert at Morgan and Morgan.

  • How Do I Prove Liability in a Truck Accident in Fresno?

    Depending on how the accident occurred, you may need to gather evidence like driver logs, vehicle maintenance records, eyewitness testimonies, accident scene photos and videos, and expert testimony. On top of that, you must prove that the other party owed you a duty of care and breached it, leading to your injuries and losses.

  • How Long Do I Have To File a Truck Accident Claim in Fresno?

    In Fresno and throughout California, you only have two years to file a truck accident claim. The clock begins to count from the date of the accident. If filing a wrongful death claim, meaning your loved one died after being involved in the truck accident, the clock begins to count from the date of death, not when the accident occurred.

  • What Damages Can I Recover if I Win?

    Speaking of damages, where applicable, you may be entitled to compensation for:

    • medical expenses;
    • lost wages;
    • pain and suffering;
    • property damage;
    • emotional distress;
    • funeral and burial expenses;
    • loss of companionship;
    • and more. 

    Generally, the exact damages you may be entitled to depends on the severity of your injuries and the unique circumstances surrounding your case. That’s also one of the things our truck accident experts can help establish.
