Truck Accidents In Southern California
The South Bay and surrounding areas in Southern California are hot spots for the trucking industry. Trucks and semitrailers are continually coming and going from the Long Beach port or traveling the many freeways and interstates throughout the area, including the 405, the 5, Sepulveda State Highway and the 110.
A tired or inattentive truck driver is highly dangerous on these highways. Traffic is always thick, and the trucks are cumbersome to move. Any mistake or reckless move can result in a devastating accident, sometimes hurting dozens of individuals along the freeway.

Truck drivers are held to a federal standard regarding how much rest they must get before driving, how many hours they are allowed to drive in a row, and how to properly load and operate the vehicle. A failure to comply with any of these rules can result in serious accidents.
Trucking companies know how much they stand to lose in a lawsuit and go to great lengths to cover up any wrongdoing. It is critical that you have representation immediately after a truck accident. We will go in as soon as possible to recover the evidence and begin investigation before the trucking company has a chance to hide evidence of error. This includes logbooks, surveillance video, witness accounts and forensic evidence from the scene of the accident.
