San Diego Trucking Accidents Attorney
San Diego roads can be extremely dangerous, especially when negligent truck drivers are breaking traffic laws on a daily basis. An accident involving a commercial vehicle, including an 18-wheeler, semi or tractor-trailer, can be extremely serious, leading to severe – if not fatal – injuries. Although federal regulations require truckers to drive safely, this doesn’t always happen. Whether the driver was following another vehicle too closely, speeding, changing lanes improperly, or falling asleep at the wheel, any action on the trucker’s part that can be classified as negligent can lead to legal consequences. If you or someone you love was the victim of an unsafe trucker, contact San Diego truck accident lawyer Mark Simowitz today to file a claim.
Truck drivers tend to work long schedules, but there are laws in place that require them to get a certain amount of sleep. In spite of these laws, truckers often operate their vehicles while drowsy, falling asleep at the wheel and crashing into other cars or pedestrians. Other times, truckers speed in order to arrive at their destinations on time, break countless other traffic laws and even drink on the job. If you or a loved one was involved in a truck accident in San Diego because the driver committed a traffic violation or crime, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your pain and suffering, which Mr. Simowitz will work tirelessly to secure for you and your family.
Truck accidents have increased drastically over the past five years, leading to an even greater number of catastrophic injuries. Truck accidents can lead to broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain trauma, paralysis, and worst of all, death. As a result, victims may be entitled to money damages and medical care, so it is imperative that those who have been involved in a truck crash seek legal help right away to protect their rights.
