Santa Barbara Trucking Accident Lawyer


If you survive a trucking accident in Santa Barbara, your life will probably never be the same. Many victims of trucking accidents are fatally injured, but those who do live through such an accident may have lifelong disabilities and other medical challenges associated with their accident. These individuals may be unable to support themselves or afford the medical care they need without obtaining funds recovered from a personal injury claim. Getting help from an experienced Santa Barbara trucking accident lawyer as soon as possible after the accident occurs gives you the best possible chance to recover compensation for your injuries and to begin moving forward towards recovery and health.

While some trucking crashes are truly accidents, far too many of them are caused by a truck driver’s negligence. What makes trucking accidents so catastrophic is the fact that a truck weighs much more than the traditional passenger vehicle. This means that even at relatively low speeds, the damage caused by a trucking accident can be severe. Furthermore, what complicates these issues from a legal perspective is that more than one entity or person may be responsible for the accident itself. For example, If the trucking company was negligent in their hiring and training practices, it could also be held partly responsible for an accident.

Trying to figure these issues out on your own can be frustrating and overwhelming. However, Partnering with an experienced Santa Barbara trucking accident attorney gives you the peace of mind that an experienced lawyer is working hard on your behalf to explore all possible avenues for recovery, so that you can focus on getting better.

In a minor vehicle accident, a victim might suffer for weeks or months and then feel as though they have bounced back. That experience, however, is rare for a trucking accident victim. A truck accident victim may never fully recover from the extent of his or her injuries. The ghost of the crash may follow the victim for years to come in the form of daily pain and invasive medical treatments.

This is why California personal injury law empowers victims to file a legal claim against any liable parties. Whether the issue is resolved in settlement talks outside of court or with a verdict from a case, finding the right lawyer is an important component for resolution. An experienced Santa Barbara trucking accident attorney will work hard on your behalf to fight for the compensation to which you may be entitled after a significant trucking accident. Since the statute of limitations requires that you file a claim in a timely manner, don’t wait to get the help you need after a crash. Contact The May Firm today!

Injuries Associated with Trucking Accidents

Truck drivers, much like all drivers, owe a duty of care to everyone on the road. When they neglect this duty of care, they endanger the lives of everyone. Negligence such as this can result in major accidents with injuries and fatalities. For the family members of victims who die as a result of such an accident, life is never the same again.

Dealing with the medical bills and lengthy procedures often associated with a trucking accident can be a difficult burden to bear for a victim. Due to the size and weight of a typical loaded commercial truck, the caused injuries may be extremely painful and expensive to treat.

Causes of Many Santa Barbara Trucking Accidents

Although it’s true that each trucking accident will have unique elements that should be explored in the post-accident evaluation, far too many of these accidents are caused by common issues of negligence. Whether it’s entirely the truck driver’s fault or the liability should be shared with others, it should not be the victim’s job to pay, both financially and otherwise, for the repercussions of such an accident.

Some of the most common causes of accidents involving trucks include speeding, distracted driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, falling asleep at the wheel, improper training or vehicle defects.
