A Los Angeles Truck Accident Lawyer Explains How to Win a California Truck Accident Case

Truck Accident Lawyer

You are a careful and conscientious driver. When you get on the road, your safety and the safety of your fellow drivers is your sole concern. You are especially careful around trucks. They are large, lumbering, dangerous vehicles, and it is good practice to keep your distance from them. Truck drivers also have a responsibility to operate their vehicles with care and caution. Most of them live up this responsibility. However, truck drivers are sometimes put into situations that make it unsafe for them to be on the road. Those situations sometimes call for the help of a Los Angeles truck accident lawyer.

If you have been in a truck accident and it is the fault of the truck driver, then you may be in your rights to sue the company that the driver works for. Some trucking companies push their drivers to their physical and mental limits. In many instances, drivers are given incentives to shorten the hours of rest they are required to take each day. They are sometimes forced to do quick turnarounds, leaving them fatigued and worn down.

A truck accident lawyer can help you build up a case against the trucking company. It is important to have a legal strategy, or at least the beginnings of a legal strategy, in place before you file suit. The moment you do so, the company’s army of lawyers will try to discredit your claims.

It is nevertheless possible to win such a lawsuit. The Los Angeles truck accident lawyers at the Kitsinian Law Firm are trained to gather evidence, introduce expert and eyewitness testimony, employ forensic evidence, and bring the relevant parts of the law to bear on the case.

Here is how our truck accident lawyers can go about getting you justice:

Gathering Evidence

Your lawyer will engage specialists who can take a fresh look at the photos and the evidence gathered at the crash site. They will be able to analyze the facts in a way that accurately reconstructs how the accident unfolded.

Eyewitness Testimony

Many of the other drivers on the road that day will have witnessed the accident and the events that led up to it. Your lawyer will be able to interview those witnesses and have them make sworn testimony as to what they saw. Select witnesses may also be called to testify in court if necessary.

The Law

In the end, you have to prove that there was an accident, that the truck accident was the fault of the other driver, that the accident was the result of negligence, inattention, or recklessness, and that the accident has caused you pain and suffering. We have the experience necessary to make the connections necessary to prove this.

The case need not go to trial. The trucking company may prefer to settle rather than go through a long court proceeding. If that happens, then the Kitsinian Law Firm will work to negotiate a settlement that is commensurate with all that you have suffered.
