Truck Accident Cases Require Much More Legal Experience Than a Car Accident

Truck Accident Cases Require Much More Legal Experience

Here in Southern California truck accident cases require much more legal experience than a car accident.  These cases are legally quite complex and often involve multiple liable parties.  The responsible parties such as the actual owner or lessor of the truck, the truck driver and the company they work for are usually insured by large insurance companies with powerful legal teams.  They will do everything possible to shift the blame for the accident or otherwise attempt to deny part or all of your rightful truck accident personal injury claim.

The Law Firm of Rivers J. Morrell has the resources, trial experience, legal skill and proven strategies necessary to stand up to any insurance company and achieve multi-million dollar verdicts on behalf of our clients in truck accident and personal injury cases.  My name is Rivers Morrell, and I spent the first 20 years of my personal injury career representing the major insurance companies.  I know how they think, what they value and the tactics they use.  This unique experience provides my clients with a strong advantage.

California truck accident cases require much more legal experience than a car accident case due to the extensive federal and state laws which apply to the trucking industry and the documentation associated with operations and maintenance.  Most trucks are insured for well over $1 million and their attorneys are working aggressively to document and protect their position.

After more than 40 years of experience I can tell you the serious injuries and wrongful death claims associated with truck accident cases require a focus on the documentation.  We must identify, locate and preserve all documentation relating to the accident, the truck, the truck driver and how the vehicle has been maintained.  Dash cams and other modern electronic logging devices contain detailed information about a driver’s time on the road, rest breaks, delays and the pressures they may have been under to deliver their cargo.

The black box of a truck is called the Electronic Control Module or ECM.  This module collects additional information about the truck’s speed at the time of the accident, when the driver applied the brakes and other indicators regarding the driver’s typical driving habits other factors which demonstrate liability.

This is why it is important to work with the proven personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of Rivers J. Morrell.  If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident we invite you to review the strong recommendations of our clients and the legal industry and contact us or call 949-305-1400 for a free consultation.
