Truck Accident and Injury Attorney Serving Orange County
Santa Ana is one of the busiest areas in Orange County, and each year there are hundreds of accidents involving commercial and delivery truck drivers. Commercial truck drivers may not have the extended size and impact of a semi-tractor trailer, but they still cause serious and sometimes fatal injury when they are involved in an accident. Delivery drivers are notoriously distracted, checking maps and delivery instructions and communicating with the home office or control center. They are in a constant state of “hurry up”, and this can lead to moments of distraction that result in accidents in and around the Santa Ana metro area.
Transitioning from major highways like Interstate 5 and the 405 to local freeways like the 55 and the 22 can be hazardous. Accidents with commercial vehicles often happen at exit and entry ramps to these busy highways, as well as at intersections throughout the city. Maintaining control of a commercial truck or delivery vehicle while being aware of all around them and maintaining the pressures of a delivery schedule can be overwhelming for anyone.
Experienced Commercial and Delivery Truck Accident Attorney Holds Delivery Companies and Freight Businesses Accountable
My name is Rivers J. Morrell, III and I have served the residents of Santa Ana and Orange County for more than 40 years. I have experience in thousands of motor vehicle accident cases, and have gone up against commercial and delivery truck companies and commercial truck owners many times. These cases require experience, expertise, skill and a track record that the business owners and their insurance companies will respect. They know I have taken hundreds of cases to trial, and will do whatever is necessary to protect the interests of my clients.
Most delivery truck and commercial truck drivers are capable people doing a difficult job. There are laws that regulate the number of consecutive hours they can operate a vehicle to prevent them from becoming fatigued. Some companies don’t take the same level of care with their commercial trucks and vehicles as other companies might. Each of these reasons, and many others may have contributed to your accident, and I will do everything possible to protect your interests and achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
