18-Wheel Truck AccidentsIn the Los Angeles area, an accident with an 18 wheel truck happens every day. Even good drivers can fall victim to a negligent truck driver. Those drivers may operate under high levels of stress and exhaustion, increasing the chances of a truck accident. The personal injury attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm have experience representing truck accident victims. Our attorneys will fight to restore your damaged property and the compensation of lost wages, as well as the pain and suffering endured as a victim.
Severe injuries are common when large commercial vehicles are involved. Such injuries require immediate attention from EMTs and transportation by ambulance or Careflight helicopter and can be expensive for those involved. Our personal injury attorneys can intervene in your behalf to make certain that all necessary treatments are available for the victim. Immediate contact is especially recommended when the victim lacks proper medical insurance.
Extensive medical care, long term rehabilitation, and life altering conditions can result from heavy truck accidents. The large size and weight of 18 wheel trucks result in powerful collisions. Wilshire Law Firm personal injury attorneys will organize expert testimony regarding the condition and severity of your case ensuring the full compensation of rehabilitation expenses resulting from:
- Head trauma and brain injury
- Paraplegia/ Quadriplegia
- Internal bleeding
- Fractured or broken bones
The attorneys of Wilshire Law Firm work to their fullest extent to accumulate facts and establish a case proving the accountability of the negligent party. Reconstruction of events based on evidence and testimonials are used to strengthen a case.
