When someone has been seriously injured in a commercial truck or semi-truck crash here in California, you need to know who it is that you can sue or make your claims against to compensate you for all of your injuries and the damages that you have sustained. Unlike a car crash, where you know who owns the car and who was driving it, in the commercial setting it is much more complicated than that. You oftentimes have multiple layers of ownership of these tractor trailers, the driver, the cab, the trailer and the contents. There are brokers that put packages together that arrange for this and there are multiple layers of people that are involved.

The only way to find out exactly who is responsible and who is going to pay your compensation is to hire a skilled and experienced semi-truck attorney. They are going to have to get in and conduct a very detailed investigation to determine who is responsible and who has the financial obligation to pay you for your injuries and damages. The unfortunate thing is this: if you have been involved in a crash with a commercial truck or semi, oftentimes there are multiple parties. A lot of people have been involved in that crash and there’s going to be multiple claims coming from all directions. You need to make sure that your attorney finds out everybody who has financial responsibility to you to make sure that if you settle this claim, you’re fully and fairly compensated for all of your damages, your past damages and anything going into the future.

If you have personal injuries that are going to last the rest of your life, you need to make sure that you have an attorney that has the ability to go out and find who is responsible for that and secure those payments for you. You are entitled to be compensated for all of your injuries and damages, and the only way to do that is to make sure that you have an attorney who knows what they’re doing and handles these types of semi-truck cases and commercial truck cases on a regular basis.
