Major Car Or Truck Accidents Need A Major Attorney

Car, motorcycle and truck accidents happen every day throughout Southern California. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, your injuries could result in major hospital bills, lost time from work, rehabilitation therapy and costly medicines or equipment. The uncertainty of how you are going to make ends meet after an accident can be stressful. Many injuries are substantially life-changing. Insurance companies often try to minimize the extent of your injuries, so it is important to work with an experienced attorney who knows how to negotiate — and litigate when necessary — to get the maximum compensation for your injuries, medical bills and pain and suffering.

Thankfully, you do not have to face these insurance companies or negligent drivers alone. Here at the Law Offices of Chris Yturralde, I have been practicing personal injury law for my clients for more than 20 years. In those years, I have come to learn what it takes to negotiate with big insurance companies for your behalf.

What A Truck Accident Can Cost You

Truckers work long hours and can spend upwards of 20 hours a day behind the wheel of a vehicle transporting thousands of pounds of product. With so little sleep and so much force in the vehicle, it can spell disaster for anybody that is caught in the way. It can feel like a major uphill battle when you are fighting with the trucking company’s insurance provider for fair compensation.

Truck accidents are commonly more dangerous than car accidents because of how much larger an 18-wheeler is compared to even an SUV. These accidents can cause catastrophic injuries, resulting in:

  • Permanent nerve damage
  • Loss of vision
  • Loss of limb
  • Loss of motor skills or other bodily function
  • Death

Any of these injuries can cost you dearly in terms of hospital bills, physical therapy, prescription costs, loss of income and even in the pain and suffering you experienced.

Despite everything an accident can cost you, the trucking company’s insurer is not likely to just offer you a settlement to match that loss. Like any business, insurance companies are out to make money, which means that they will try to pay you as little as possible in your compensation. We are prepared to negotiate for your best possible compensation and take your case to court if they will not offer you fair compensation.

Do Not Wait Another Day To Defend Yourself

After an accident, it is common for a victim to be told that they can settle things without an attorney. Insurers say this to get away with paying you less than you deserve for your injuries. I can help you hold those responsible accountable for their actions and make sure that you receive the best possible compensation for your injuries.
