Commercial trucks are large and can cause extensive damage and injury when they collide with another motor vehicle.
In most cases, the employer of the truck driver will be vicariously liable for any injuries that occur as a result of negligence on behalf of the driver.
The victims in a crash involving a commercial vehicle in or near California may suffer head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries or brain injuries.
The victim of an accident involving a commercial vehicle may also have lost wages, and extensive hospital and rehabilitation bills.
Personal injury attorneys can represent both the driver of the commercial vehicle or the driver or passenger in another vehicle involved in the crash.
The AAJ is committed to promoting a fair and effective civil justice system while supporting the work of attorneys representing plaintiffs.
The CAOC serves both as a professional organization for California personal injury attorneys and other lawyers who represent plaintiffs, and as an advocacy group that opposes legislation that would limit access to the civil court system.
