Representing Those Injured In Truck Accidents for 40+ Years
Why do you need an experienced truck accident lawyer if you are injured in an accident involving an 18-wheeler tractor-trailer or commercial truck? Truck accidents which result in severe or fatal injuries are unique cases that involve complex issues. Commercial vehicles and trucks are usually covered by multiple layers of insurance. These large insurance carriers deploy a team of attorneys and adjusters who have one job and goal:
Make sure you get the lowest possible settlement for your truck accident injury claim.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a semi truck or other kind of licensed commercial truck or delivery van on a California roadway, the legal team at the Law Firm of Rivers J. Morrell, III, can help.

Truck Regulations In California
FMCSA regulations cover every aspect of company operations, load requirements, driver training and expectations behind the wheel. Some violations of federal trucking laws involve:
- Improper logbook entries
- Driver fatigue
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Unsecured cargo
- Overloaded cargo
Semi, tractor-trailer, school bus and other commercial vehicle accidents cause some of the most devastating injuries, which is why it is important to enlist the help of a competent and experienced personal injury lawyer. The insurance company or truck company will be conducting an investigation early and will try to pressure you to settle for less than the amount of which you are entitled to. An attorney can investigate the accident and seek the help of trucking experts in order to protect your rights and help you obtain fair compensation.
