Truck Accident Laws and Compensation

What is the legal standard for truck accident compensation in California?

If the truck accident is someone else’s fault, California law requires them to pay you fair compensation for your losses. Your damages are your economic losses plus an amount for other harms like pain and suffering (non-economic). Violation of a traffic law is strong evidence of fault. Truck drivers are held to a higher standard of care than other drivers. Conduct that falls below that standard is negligence.

Is California a no-fault state for truck accidents?

No, California is not a no-fault state. California is an at-fault state for truck accidents. The party who causes the accident must pay for the damages. California does not have threshold minimums or damage caps for truck accidents. Fault is based on who caused the accident by violating a traffic law or otherwise being negligent.

What happens when a company truck hits you?

When a company truck hits you, the driver and their employer may be liable for your damages. Commercial drivers have a high standard to take care of their vehicles, secure the loads they are transporting and take care when they operate.

What do lawyers look for in a truck accident?

Lawyers in a truck accident look for issues related to proving the victim’s right to compensation, maximizing the amount they deserve, and managing the legal process as efficiently as possible. Of course, the issues may not always be immediately known at the time of the accident, and the defense will not admit fault. In a truck accident, the lawyer may investigate any of the following issues:

  • An employer who may be responsible and the insurance policies that may pay damages
  • Vehicle defects or negligent maintenance of the vehicle that may amount to legal fault
  • Underlying causes of the accident that may not be obvious, like a lack of sleep or poor driver training
  • What evidence can be gathered through formal discovery, including subpoenas and depositions
  • How to prove the link between the accident and your injuries
  • Long-term injuries and the financial costs associated with treatment
  • Available categories of compensation that are often missed like lost income, travel to medical appointments, mental health injuries, and prescription costs
  • Demonstrating the pain and suffering that accompany your injuries

There are many steps to getting the compensation you deserve for a truck accident. There is a lot of work to do long before you ever have a court date. Our lawyers are trained to find these issues and prepare a legal strategy to pursue the compensation that you deserve.

Is the truck driver always at fault?

Although the truck driver is not always at fault, they operate a large vehicle and must look out for others on the roads. Fault depends on the exact circumstances and conditions that are present before the accident.

Any relevant factors may be considered to determine fault. An experienced lawyer for truck accidents can help you build the claim to prove fault. Because of California’s comparative fault system, you may receive compensation even if your actions may have contributed to the accident.

Truck Accident Lawsuit FAQs

How do truck accident claims work?

Truck accident claims work by filing a claim with the truck driver’s insurance. However, you want to make sure this is done with an experienced lawyer by your side. Aside from what insurance companies want you to believe, they do not have your interest at heart. In fact, the opposite is true. Insurance companies will do anything to shift fault onto another party. Therefore, it is imperative to have proper representation by your side from the onset of your truck accident matter.

It may be the employer who is ultimately liable for the crash. Your experienced truck accident lawyer will notify the insurance company that you are a victim and claiming damages. It’s important to clearly identify the damages and support them with proof. The insurance company has a set period to investigate and respond. If you disagree with their decision, you may file a legal claim for a determination from a neutral third party, the court.

*You have the right to have an experienced truck accident lawyer represent you throughout the claims process. One important way your lawyer helps you is by negotiating with the insurance company and presenting a clear case for the appropriate amount of compensation without the need to take your case to trial. Lawyers will also evade the tricks of the insurance company intended to have you placed at fault at a crash. Do not wait. Contact our lawyers immediately. Your case depends on it!

How long after a truck accident can you file an injury claim in California?

You can file an injury claim up to two years after a truck accident under Cal. Code of Civ. Proc. § 335.1; § 338. There is a three-year limit for property damage claims. When a claim involves a government agency, the time limit may be as short as six months.

There are some exceptions to the time limit for minors and individuals lacking mental capacity, so be sure to speak to our lawyers if you believe the time deadline may be an issue. Do not wait to contact us to begin working on your case.

Are there any damages caps on truck accident claims in California?

There are no damage caps on truck accident claims in California. No matter how severe your injuries are, and the future medical care needed, you can claim the full amount. In addition, there are no limits for pain and suffering compensation. California law allows for victims to be fully compensated for their injuries.

Can I get compensation if I’m partially at fault for a truck accident in California?

Yes, it is possible to receive compensation if you are partially at fault for a truck accident. In fact, because of California’s comparative negligence laws, you may receive compensation even if you are 99% at fault for causing the accident. Because damages for truck accident victims tend to be high with severe injuries, the comparative negligence laws can be beneficial in ensuring that victims receive the compensation they deserve.

Who may be involved in a truck accident case?

A truck accident case may involve many parties, including:

  • FedEx

  • UPS

  • Amazon Delivery Driver

  • Semi-trucks, 18-wheelers

  • Dump trucks

  • Construction trucks

  • Other freight trucks

  • Small business vehicles

  • Individual vehicle owners

Insurance company was against me, this law firm got the best of my lawsuit. I highly recommend L A Century, my attorney for life. Thank you Ryan and Marco, you are the best.

Marchelle Y

Attorney Daneshrad is very professional and courteous. I called him after being involved in a rear ender. I didn’t know anything about anything when it came to the process for making a claim after a car accident. Everyone at his office including Jennifer did everything in their power to make sure I was taken care of.

They made doctors appointments and regularly called to check-in on me. We ended up having to file a lawsuit. Three months after we did, attorney Daneshrad called me with great news! We had a settlement offer. It was for a lot more than I could have imagined. It has been three weeks since the settlement and he still calls me to check in on my injuries. You can tell he really cares about. He isn’t just about the numbers. Thank you attorney daneshrad! And happy holidays!
