Let us do the fighting after a California truck accident

Few people in Orange County enjoy driving on the highway next to or behind tractor trailers. Most of the time, these big rig trucks are only a minor inconvenience. Occasionally, however, they cause catastrophic accidents.

Truck accidents can occur for a variety of reasons including truck driver fatigue or improper truck maintenance. Regardless of the cause, smaller vehicles and their occupants usually suffer the majority of the injuries and damages in a truck accident. Cars, SUVs and other motor vehicles are simply not designed to withstand an impact from such an enormous vehicle, like a tractor trailer.

If you or a loved one is a victim of a truck accident, it is imperative that you follow the appropriate steps to recover accident-related expenses. In many such cases, an insurance company will contact you to try to settle the matter. While it may be tempting to opt for the quick settlement offer, the insurance company is probably not offering a sufficient amount. Their main concern is keeping costs down and avoiding litigation. But, litigation is often a better alternative for victims and their families.

Following a truck accident, a victim should not speak with an insurance company without first understanding all of their legal options. Our firm has over 60 years of experience when it comes to personal injury cases.

Being involved in a truck accident can be a life-changing event. Orange County residents who find themselves in this difficult position may want to contact our firm and explore their legal rights. We will fight to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve and do not have to settle for a low-ball settlement offer from an unsympathetic insurance company.

In the years that followed, Doug’s sons Brian and Matt joined him in the practice and helped build the firm into a powerful force to help right the wrongs done to their clients. Much of their success over the years has stemmed from the dynamic created by the familial nature of the firm and how harmoniously they all work together, each of their individual strengths complementing and fortifying the group as a whole. Accordingly, the firm changed its name to Easton & Easton, LLP in 2014 to better reflect the true dynamic of the firm and Doug now serves as Managing Partner of Easton & Easton. In 2015, Doug was selected as a Top 100 Litigation Lawyer in California by The American Society of Legal Advocates.
