Anaheim Truck Accidents

Trucks provide an essential service to the economy of California and the rest of the United States. These large vehicles transport billions of pounds of cargo throughout the nation every day. While we rely on tractor-trailers and other large commercial trucks very frequently, these vehicles are inherently some of the most dangerous on the road due to their sheer size. When a truck accident occurs, the damage can be devastating. If you recently experienced a truck accident in the Anaheim area due to the negligence of another party, you might have grounds for a personal injury claim.

Why Choose Easton & Easton?

The attorneys at Easton & Easton are legal paladins dedicated to protecting clients’ rights. The team at Easton & Easton has more than 100 years of combined experience of dedicated legal service to clients in the Anaheim area. If you need legal counsel for a complex claim following a truck accident, your Anaheim truck accident attorney will help you determine the full extent of your damages and help you proceed with your legal action for recovery.

Damages in truck accident cases tend to be quite high because of the severe injuries and property damage large commercial trucks can inflict in an accident. It’s essential to hire an Anaheim truck accident lawyer with solid experience handling complicated personal injury cases, especially those in which liability is initially unclear. Truck accidents can easily involve multiple defendants, and determining liability is an essential step toward recovering damages from a truck accident claim. Our firm has the skill and resources to provide you with timely, responsive, and accurate legal guidance through every phase of your truck accident case.

Common Challenges With Truck Accident Claims

A civil claim for damages caused by a truck accident falls under the purview of personal injury law. The plaintiff filing the claim must name the party they believe to be responsible for their damages, and they must provide a full breakdown of their damages as part of their Complaint. Truck accident cases are often difficult because liability may be unclear, or it may fall to multiple parties in different measures. A seasoned Anaheim truck accident lawyer can help a client identify the parties who bear liability for their claimed damages and then determine each party’s degree of fault.

When multiple defendants share fault for a personal injury claim, they typically pay for those damages in proportion to their fault. For example, if in a case with three defendants, the judge finds one defendant to be 40% at fault and the other two to be 30% at fault each, then the defendants would be responsible for 40%, 30%, and 30% of the claimant’s damages, respectively.

Another problem when it comes to truck accident claims is that the damages are often so extensive, it may not be immediately possible to accurately calculate the full scope of the plaintiff’s damages. For example, in a serious truck accident that resulted in grievous injury, permanent damage, or disability, it may take time for the plaintiff to fully understand the extent of their damages. The California civil court system allows a plaintiff to seek compensation for all medical expenses required for them to reach maximum medical recovery after their injuries or illnesses. It could take months or even years in some cases for the full amount to come into focus.

Aside from determining liability and fully assessing damages, truck accident cases may also become complicated issues due to government regulations. If a truck accident occurred due to a failure to maintain the road, the plaintiff may need to contend with the Department of Transportation’s sovereign immunity and face reduced compensation options. If the accident occurred due to a regulatory failure on the part of a truck driver, trucking company, or parts manufacturer, liability for the accident might fall to one of these parties. They may face criminal action in addition to civil liability for victims’ damages. Ultimately, there is plenty of room for a truck accident claim to evolve in a very complicated legal battle, and the right attorney can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.

Proving Fault and Collecting Compensation for Your Truck Accident Claim

Your Anaheim truck accident lawyer will help you determine which parties may bear liability for your damages when you start building your truck accident claim. Investigation into the physical evidence available from your accident and photos of the scene of the crash can reveal how the accident occurred, thereby indicating liability for your damages.

It’s possible for liability to fall to a truck driver for their individual negligence or a trucking company for their failure to enforce proper training and experience policies for their drivers. Liability may also fall to the party responsible for the care and maintenance of the truck involved in the accident. An Anaheim truck accident attorney can help you determine fault for the accident and prove the accident occurred due to negligence. Their next job will be to help you recover compensation for your losses.

As with any personal injury case, it is essential to have a complete breakdown of your damages, including the property damage to your vehicle and the total cost of your medical care. You can claim compensation for present and future medical expenses resulting from your accident, and you can also claim compensation for lost wages if you were forced to miss time from work due to your injury.

In the event you are left unable to work in the future, your Anaheim truck accident lawyer can help you secure compensation for the future income you would have reasonably expected to earn had your injury not occurred. Damages in an Anaheim trucking accident case may also include pain and suffering compensation for the plaintiff’s physical pain and psychological distress resulting from the accident.

Coming out of my first auto accident as an adult, a very difficult and scary time to navigate and understand, I was so incredibly thankful to have been put in contact with Easton & Easton. I honestly was lost with how to handle paperwork, doctors, medical costs and what next steps were, and from the moment I spoke with Travis Easton and my case manager Katie, my mind was put at ease. They have made the entire process stress free for me as I recovered, and I am so grateful for them and their genuine care for my case. Communication from the start has been fantastic, especially making clear what my expectations for the entire process would look like, and I truly believe they have my best interest at heart. 100% I would recommend their firm for anyone that is needing representation!

Sofia Sanchez

I could not be more pleased with the services provided by the Law Offices of W. Douglas Easton. The senior partner Mr. Easton took the time to meet with me and my wife while I was still in the hospital, where he gave my family hope that there was light at the end of a very long, and very dark tunnel. Matt Easton then worked my case, and because of his dedication, experience and expertise I received a settlement that was larger than I EVER thought possible. It was truly astounding! Matt and the entire team at Easton & Easton looked out for me throughout my recovery, and in the end they gave me my life back. Five stars is not enough. Thanks Matt! Thanks Easton & Easton!

I can’t say enough amazing things about my experience with Travis Easton at Easton & Easton. Travis and his entire team (Katie, Amy, Dee, Michelle, & Araceli) are phenomenal. It provided me a lot of comfort to know I was being so well taken care of. I was especially impressed that every document for the case was perfectly written and specific to me. Nothing was generic, which shows the level of care and attention they put into each individual case. I had such a great experience and would highly recommend Travis Easton and his firm to anyone going through a personal injury. Travis took a bad situation and made the best of it for me. Thank you again, I’m forever grateful!!

Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.

Jeffrey N.

I was in a pretty bad car accident and decided to have Easton & Easton represent me, Travis Easton to be specific. Travis Easton and his paralegal made the whole process effortless. They were so understanding and helpful! The entire thing was a gigantic mess, yet Travis managed to make it run like clockwork. I would HIGHLY recommend Easton & Easton! If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!

Mark B.

I was treated with utmost respect and I felt like I was being represented by a close family member. The responses to my questions were quick and clear. What E & E has done for me is phenomenal.
My sincere thanks to Brian, Matt, Travis, Doug, Gabriel and Amera. They are what they are because of their dedication to provide high quality and professional service to their clients.
