Truck Accident Lawyer in Imperial County, CA

Imperial County, located in southeastern California, borders Arizona and Mexico. The area encompasses over 4,500 square miles of land primarily used for agriculture. However, with two major interstates (I-8 and I-10) intersecting the county, heavy truck traffic hauling goods and materials is commonplace on Imperial County roads.

When large trucks are involved in accidents, injuries sustained by passenger vehicle occupants can be catastrophic. Unlike regular fender benders, collisions with tractor trailers or other commercial trucks often lead to severe, disabling, and fatal injuries due to the sheer size and weight discrepancies between the vehicles.

If you or a loved one has been harmed in a truck accident in Imperial County, you need an experienced truck accident lawyer on your side. The Imperial County truck accident lawyers at Moseley Collins Law have over 40 years of experience representing injury victims in truck crashes nationwide. We have the resources and tenacity to stand up to trucking companies like FedEx, UPS, DHS and their insurance carriers to fight for maximum compensation for your injuries and damages.

Common Causes of Truck Crashes in Imperial County

Complex factors frequently come into play when large trucks collide with smaller passenger vehicles. Truck crashes can result from:

  • Truck driver errors - Distraction, fatigue, reckless driving
  • Equipment failures - Defective brakes, tires, steering, lights
  • Improper loading/cargo issues causing shifting load or overweight trucks
  • Drug or alcohol impairment
  • Company policies forcing unsafe truck driver behaviors

Common Truck Accident Injuries Sustained

Sadly, we have seen many avoidable truck crashes caused by human errors and mistakes by carriers valuing profits over safety. When a trucking company, manufacturer, repair shop, cargo loader or other party is responsible for a crash due to negligence or misconduct, they need to be held fully accountable.

An experienced Imperial County truck accident lawyer can determine all liable parties in your crash and build a strong injury claim on victims’ behalf.

Common Truck Accident Injuries Sustained

When multi-ton trucks smash into regular passenger vehicles, the damage inflicted can be extensive and traumatic. Some most common truck collision injuries we see include:

  • Head Trauma - Concussions, hemorrhages, scarring, disfigurement
  • Spine Injuries - Vertebrae fractures, paralysis, disc damage
  • Orthopedic Harm - Broken bones, crush injuries, amputations
  • Internal Organ Damage - Lung, liver, kidney, spleen, bowel
  • Wrongful Death

Sadly, many truck accident injury victims face a lifetime of pain, disability, steep medical bills, lost income, and reduced quality of life. They deserve full financial compensation.

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitative and assistive care
  • Pain and suffering

Why Choose an Imperial County Truck Accident Lawyer?

Why Choose an Imperial County Truck Accident Lawyer?

Handling your own truck accident claim directly against major truck insurers almost never produces fair, full value settlements. As experienced California trucking crash lawyers, we know the tactics these insurers use to minimize settlements and deny victims their rightful recuperation and compensation.

Trucking carriers also quickly work after crashes to shift blame away from themselves onto other parties, including the very people they injured. Their main goal is to avoid liability, even when their drivers or practices clearly caused the collisions.

Moseley Collins Law levels the playing field. We have the litigation firepower to stand up to Fortune 500 trucking carriers and refute bogus defenses and blame shifting. Our resources include using in-depth crash analysis and reconstruction, gathering evidence from electronic logging devices and truck data recorders, and hiring medical experts across specialties to review the full extent of clients’ injuries stemming from the crashes.

How an Imperial County Truck Accident Lawyer Helps

Truck accident cases are highly complex and require vast resources and legal experience to handle effectively against mega carriers and insurers. When you retain Moseley Collins Law to represent you, here are some of the ways we establish liability against defendants and attain maximum case value for client injuries/losses:

  • Launch independent crash investigation - Accident reconstruction specialists analyze root causes. We gather critical electronic evidence like ELDs documenting everything leading up to collisions. Police mainly document basics at the scene like weather/road conditions. We dig deeper into human errors and mechanical defects causing crashes.
  • Assemble medical evidence fully detailing injuries - Using physicians across orthopedics, neurology, psychology and other specialties, we quantify the full extent of clients’ short and long term care needs and disabilities tied to their crashes. Life care planning helps determine complete costs into the future.
  • Calculate full economic losses - We factor past/future medical bills, lost earnings, lost promotions, loss of retirement funds, etc. using forensic economists and vocational specialists to credibly set value.
  • Interview eyewitnesses - Independent statements help resolve disputes over fault. Statements counter defendant efforts denying responsibility or shifting blame onto victims.
  • Negotiate assertively with insurers - Based on case evidence and realities, we aggressively pursue fair settlements. If offers don’t adequately cover losses, we won’t hesitate to file lawsuits against defendants.
  • Prepare cases thoroughly for trial - We build encounterable legal arguments and plaintiff testimony, backed by unquestionable evidence. Our readiness to go to trial provides more leverage extracting better pre-trial settlements.

Bottom line - Moseley Collins Law leaves no stone unturned when building truck accident injury cases. Call today for dedicated legal representation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions Why choose a truck accident lawyer instead of handling my claim myself?

Trucking carriers and insurers have vast resources to deny claims and shift blame. Our experienced lawyers know how to build an air-tight case proving truck driver fault and the full extent of damages deserved. We relentlessly negotiate top-dollar settlements.

How much does hiring your Imperial County truck accident firm cost?

We provide representation on a contingency-fee basis, meaning no upfront costs to you. We only collect if we secure you a settlement - deducting a pre-agreed percentage to cover our fees/costs.

How long do I have to file an injury claim after a truck crash?

In California you generally have two years after the collision to pursue a claim before the statute of limitations expires. Evidence also fades over time, so it’s best consulting our lawyers promptly.

Can I recover damages if I was partly at-fault for the truck wreck?

Yes, California uses “pure comparative negligence.” Your compensation is reduced by your attributed percentage of fault, but you can still recover damages up to your responsibility portion.

What has your law firm recovered for past Imperial County truck accident clients?

We have a proven track record recovering over 7-figure and 8-figure truck accident settlements nationwide for decades. Call today to discuss the maximum value we can credibly pursue for your unique case.
