Williams & Javellana, LLP
Chico Trucking Accidents Lawyer
One of the more devastating types of accidents that may occur involves a commercial truck. In fact, trucking accidents tend to result in larger economic losses, as well as more severe injuries and more frequently, the death of individuals in the accident. This is often in relation to the size as well as the weight of the trucks that are in the accident in association with the other vehicles that are in the accident. If you find yourself in a situation where you have been involved in a trucking accident, you can contact Williams & Javellana, LLP. They will defend your case aggressively to ensure that you get the compensation that is due to you.
How serious are trucking accidents? Although the severity of the accident may differ from one to another, when you look at the statistics, you see that they are a lot more severe than accidents involving two automobiles. According to the 2012 statistics, there were over 25,000 individuals involved in trucking accidents and out of those accidents, 697 fatalities occurred. Being injured in one of these accidents can cost you in numerous ways. Not only may you be dealing with expensive medical bills, you may also be out of work for an extended amount of time. That isn’t even to mention the pain and suffering that is associated with trucking accidents in many cases.
The issues that are involved with trucking accidents are often unique. They may include dealing with truck drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A number of other conditions can also lead to trucking accidents, including the trucks driving too fast for the road conditions, swinging the vehicle wide when they make turns or failing to allow proper braking distance. In some cases, the truck may not have been inspected properly. This could result in a greater likelihood of trucking accidents occurring. The issues that are associated with improper inspections could affect anything from the lights and brakes of the truck to the tires.
Another issue that is often associated with trucking accidents is the fact that the truck driver may be fatigued. There are laws that govern the amount of time that a driver is able to stay on the road in order to keep other drivers safe. They may have an unrealistic work schedule imposed by that company who they drive for, which would cause them to stay on the road for long hours. This is not only illegal; it is very dangerous for the other drivers that are sharing the road with them.
If you are in an accident involving a large truck, you should not hesitate to contact Williams & Javellana, LLP. We can investigate the events that are surrounding the accident and work in your favor to ensure that you get the compensation that is necessary for the accident.
Gold standard for professionalism and ethics. Extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling complex cases. Attorney Javellana took painstaking hours building a civil case, (co-ownership/property rights) and then he presented overwhelming evidence at trial. Mr. Javellana was on point for 3 days at trial where he tactfully asserted a powerful presence in the courtroom and systematically picked apart the defendents and he was quick to respond to the dirty trickery of the defense attorney with undisputable legal arguments. As a result of Mr. Javellana's detailed and powerful representation, the opposing side had no chance. Mr. Javellana was extremely organized and detail oriented throughout. Mr. Javellana won the case across multiple points and most impressively he obtained a permanent injunction against the opposing party. Additionally, Mr. Javellana, represented me with two other cases where his professionalism and his relentless tactical drive continued with successful results. I highly recommend Mr. Javellana. J.M
