Trucking Accidents

Automobile owners are required to use the same highways and roadways that drivers of 18-wheelers and other large trucks employ for commercial purposes. When accidents occur between an automobile driver and a truck driver, the results can be devastating for the driver of the car due to the enormous momentum exhibited by large trucks.

California Trucking Accident Attorney

Trucking Accident Attorney | Walnut Creek | Law Offices of William SchottSome accidents are simply unavoidable, but others are not accidental at all and can be attributed to carelessness or misconduct on the part of the truck driver. Any experienced truck accident attorney knows that truck drivers implicated in wrecks are often found to have compromised their own safety and that of other drivers by skipping sleep, taking amphetamines or other drugs, or neglecting to perform necessary truck maintenance. Unfortunately, some trucking companies themselves encourage these kinds of shortcuts for the sake of the bottom line. When drivers and their employers fail to prioritize safety over efficiency, the results can permanently alter the life of others.
