If you’ve been involved in an accident or crash involving a semi-truck trailer here in Ventura, or anywhere in California, you should know that these types of claims are very different from car crash cases.

Typically, when a semi-truck causes a crash on a freeway, there are going to be multiple parties involved. In other words, there’s going to be numbers of cars and vehicles that have been involved in that crash so automatically, they are very complex because they involve a lot of people. More importantly, there are federal rules and regulations that govern these trucking companies and the drivers, and you need an attorney who knows what those federal rules and regulations are.

In addition to that, there are multiple layers of insurance that could be available. You have the driver of the truck, the owner of the tractor, the owners of the trailers and the owners of the contents inside. You may have brokers that have put the two entities together. There are multiple layers of insurance coverage that could be available, yet they don’t want to tell everybody what’s available. If you don’t have an attorney who has the experience to go out and get that information, you could be at a severe disadvantage. A car crash lawyer is not who you need if you have a serious injury from a semi-truck accident here in California. You have to get somebody who deals with these truck claims on a regular basis.
