Truck Accident Attorney Chula Vista

“Either go around it or stay way back.”

If you’ve heard that phrase from your passenger while riding down the road next to a big truck, you’re not alone. No, not a pickup truck. We’re talking about those large commercial trucks, the eighteen-wheelers that take up so much space. While we know that most of the time they are safe, we do recognize that accidents happen.

If you’ve been involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle, you may need a Chula Vista truck accident attorney to help you through your case. At the Law Offices of Edward J. Babbitt, we have attorneys who understand the intricacies of these cases and who are ready to help.

Large Vehicles

They weigh tens of thousands of pounds and driving them is a big responsibility. Large commercial trucks perform essential services in our communities and across the country, from delivering goods to building our infrastructure.

Often, you see these trucks with big name brands on the side of them. Many are delivering produce, while others are hauling vehicles from the manufacturer to the car lots. Sometimes you see large trucks with a bunch of cut down trees on the bed.

Regardless of what these trucks are used for, they all have some things in common. Their drivers need to have their commercial driver’s licenses and the trucks need to be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure they are safe for the roadways. Accidents can happen if a driver makes a mistake or the truck malfunctions.

If a driver fails to get the required amount of sleep, or is driving distracted, the results can be deadly. Worse, if a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, their negligence can cause harm to so many on the road.

If a company fails to inspect and maintain their vehicles, leading to powertrain, brake, or some other failure, other drivers on the roadway could end up in an accident they didn’t expect.

In the aftermath of an accident involving a large truck, you will have many questions, especially if you are injured.

  • Whose insurance will cover this, and will I miss work?
  • Will I be compensated for lost income?
  • Was someone’s negligence the reason I got hurt?

What To Do

If you’ve been in an accident involving a truck, the Law Offices of Edward J. Babbitt want to help you answer those questions. Our Chula Vista truck accident attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable with these cases and will work with you to ensure you are treated fairly and receive the compensation you deserve.

Not only will we help handle insurance claims, but we will contact any company involved with the operation of the truck and get to the bottom of what caused the accident. We don’t believe that negligence on the part of someone else should impact you or your family financially, especially when you need to focus on recovering from your injuries.
