If you or a family member were injured when a commercial truck (including a big rig, 18-wheeler, tractor trailer, semi, or dump truck), hit your vehicle, or its load dumped onto the road and you suffered serious injuries, you deserve just, fair compensation for your harm and damages. If your loved one was killed because of a truck accident, you may be entitled to a settlement for wrongful death.
A passenger vehicle or motorcycle doesn’t stand a chance against massive commercial trucks that can cause severe injuries and/or an untimely death. U.S. commercial vehicle maximum standards on Interstate Highways are as much as 80,000 pounds (gross truck weight), 20,000 pounds (single axle truck), and 34,000 pounds (tandem axle truck). The laws of physics explain why these much more massive vehicles can do such dramatic damage to passenger cars and SUVs in a crash, often with little damage to the truck.
When a commercial truck hits your vehicle because of the driver’s or trucking company’s negligence and/or poor vehicle maintenance, the damage done to you isn’t fair, and you deserve to be monetarily compensated for your pain and suffering, medical and rehabilitative expenses, lost income, and diminished quality of life. The injuries resulting from a heavy truck collision can be life altering and devastating.
Common Injuries Caused by Truck Accidents
As a premier San Francisco truck accident law firm, we have won many multi-million-dollar settlements for our clients who’ve been injured through no fault of their own.

Over the past two decades we’ve seen a wide variety of injuries caused by a collision with a big rig or large commercial vehicle:
▪Disfiguring burns and scars
▪Traumatic brain injuries

If your circumstances qualify, and you don’t have a way to pay for your medical care and prescriptions, we may be able to negotiate with providers on your behalf so you can pay them after we’ve won your monetary settlement.
