Truck Accident Attorney in San Diego
Nothing can prepare you for the stress of pursuing compensation after a truck accident, especially without legal representation. The insurance companies you’ll file a claim with won’t care about your injuries and losses. Instead, all they’ll want is to ensure they don’t pay what they owe. To achieve this, they’ll employ every possible tactic to avoid liability or convince you to settle for less.
Insurance companies are bullies. The only reasonable way to face them after a truck accident is by hiring a highly skilled and well-equipped San Diego truck accident lawyer to represent you.

Who Can I File a Claim With After a Truck Accident in San Diego?
Liability in a truck accident in San Diego is determined by who was at fault for the accident. This can involve the truck driver, the trucking company, manufacturers of truck parts, or other third parties such as construction companies and government agencies. After reviewing your case, your attorney will help you establish liability for the accident.
What Are Common Causes of Truck Accidents in San Diego?

- driver fatigue due to working long hours without breaks;

- failure to follow traffic laws.
In some cases, environmental factors like road conditions and weather can also play a role. An attorney from our team can help establish the cause behind the accident and also identify whoever was responsible.
How Is Compensation Calculated in Truck Accident Claims?

In San Diego and throughout California, the statute of limitations for filing a truck accident claim is two years from the date of the accident. However, certain circumstances can alter this deadline, which is why you should seek immediate legal representation.
